A long walk continued, and the East River coastline in Long Island City was visited. One of the fervent arguments I have, all the time, with the “bicycle people” revolves around how there’s actually entire multi block streets in Western Queens that don’t even have sidewalks.

Two wheels good, four wheels bad, nobody cares about pedestrians.

The sky had gotten dramatic while I was scuttling along and I couldn’t resist the saturated colors NYC had on offer.

This one looks up 44th drive towards the Citigroup Megalith at Court Square. I think we should rename 44th Drive as “Eric Adams is Awesome Avenue,” and then he’ll send us all vegan candy and money in the mail.

Don’t worry, there’s a bike lane under that puddle.

No sidewalk, but there’s a submerged bike lane. God almighty, does this City suck or what? The City DOT’s paving unit is literally based across the street.

Really. The brick wall with the barbed wire and the graffiti is them.

My shot of the night is presented above, depicting the Queensboro Bridge from under one of its onramps.
