  4. For many, the idea of riding a bike in New York is a terrifying prospect.

    This documentary film explores the current state of cycling in New York. Interviews with members of cycling community as well as Paul Steely White of Transportation Alternatives, address the importance of making New York a better place to live by creating safer streets.

    New York City’s Department of Transportation (DOT) has taken efforts to make the city safer for cyclists in response to cycling’s rise in popularity. However, obstacles such as potholes, unsafe access to bridges, and non-continuous bike lanes are just a few of the hazards that exist for bikers. In 2005, 21 bikers were killed on in New York City and are memorialized by the ghost bike project.

    This film looks at the design of Bike Lanes in New York City through the lens of a first time cyclist.

    This project was created as part of a collaboration between the Hunter IMA / MFA program and the Hunter Urban Affairs and Planning graduate program
