1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Police and Carlsberg delivery horses.

    1. There is, but there's two main problems people are lazy fuckers and can't be bothered walking the extra 100m from the far end of the bike rack and as long they can get in and out, who gives a fuck.
    The other issue is that, there's 70000 bike thefts every year, in a city with 500k residents, some ends up in a lake, parted out, exported and the rest end up at the train station, so the city walks around marking bicycles weekly to see if they get used and then remove them after x amount of time.
    2. Pending on time of day etc. I would say yes definitely, some are worse than others, as I said previously cyclists aren't required to learn the traffic laws and therefor act according to that they were told as kids, that they are the softer road user and therefor it's always the drivers fault.

    A good example is, if you are stopped at a red-light as the 10th car from the light, if you go ahead on green and hit a cyclists, who enters on red, it's your fault and some of them take advantage of it.

    3. That one may be a bit over, but I have been hit by cyclists crossing the street at a zebra crossing, as they didn't feel like stopping (like the laws says), it's not uncommon for cyclists to bang on the roof of cars if they are angry with the cars actions.
    4. I would prefer they learned the traffic laws and stopped acting like idiots and putting others life/well being in danger, there's a couple area where the idiots drive cars instead/aswell, lets call moving around there interesting.
    5. The truck has to block oncoming traffic so he can start reserving past a row of parked cars, cross the bike path and sidewalk and then enter the delivery area, until he's out of traffic both lanes of traffic are closed and everyone stops, except the cyclists, even when the truck is fully covering the bike path and sidewalk. (it's required by law to indicate when changing lanes, so it's not really a mayor issue any longer).
    6. It happens here as well, but very very rarely, as they don't have resources.

    No not at all, but the police has a larger focus on cars and giving out fines for auto offenses, than they do on cyclists, so car drivers are more careful, also it's easier to identify a motorist as they have license plate, bikes don't.


    I have a feeling we have had this discussion before.

    Not really, I think it is the most expensive zip code in NYC.

    The exterior sq/feet is bigger than my whole condo. :(

    TriBeCa. Fancy.

    the "market rate rents" or whatever they listed on that website is laughable. I'll take a 4 bedroom for $2200!

    That's what I thought but the link shows things like a 46% vacancy and half the households in the area to be 20-24 years of age.

    I'm thinking a know-nothing about NYC like me should not pay attention to that link.

    I don't understand rents at all, but I know my monthly mortgage is way less than what people in my neighborhood pay in rent. I am thankful for that.

    Yeah, that's pretty common in fancy building/neighborhoods. I've seen well over $2k per sq/ft back in the good ole' days of goldilocks 2006.
