got on my bike and did some zig zags through the streets of East Williamsburg/Bushwick. The roads are all over the place, some really smooth and wide, others throw you around like crazy. I thought I may have damaged a wheel when I slammed into a big hole, but I'm good. The bike paths that lead into Williamsburg proper are in much better condition than the majority of the Bushwick roads.
Came up on a good stretch with favorable traffic lights and no cars, so I decided to push it to open up my lungs a bit, only to realize that the building at the end of the open stretch was the Department of Sanitation
Just ended up choking on the bad air.
