City of Cycling is a three-part series and video competition exploring the complex ecosystem of transportation in New York City. The series illuminates the cyclist’s New York City — its speed, its networks, and its unexpected empathy. City of Cycling is a collaboration with SLO Architecture.
City of Cycling
In the final installment of City of Cycling, SLO Architecture queries the bike’s ability to create an urbanism of empathy. Can taking to the streets on two wheels inspire greater understanding among everyone who moves through the city?
SLO talks to Matthew Faber about the Central Park Arch Project and how the historic visions of Olmsted and Vaux could help cope with the many modes of transportation that jockey for space in New York’s most famous, and most crowded, park.
The Harbor Ring would interconnect the waterfronts of Brooklyn, Staten Island, Bayonne, Jersey City, Hoboken, and Manhattan — and the Verrazano Narrows Bridge could be the missing link. Paul Gertner, chair of Transportation Alternatives' Harbor Ring Committee tells SLO about the longstanding effort to complete the Ring and unite the harbor region.
In the second installment of City of Cycling, guest editors SLO Architecture examine the city’s cycling networks, existing and imagined. How are New Yorkers mining history, adapting technology, and making personal connections to develop the bike networks they desire?
