I (Heart) Sadik-Khan

Janette Sadik-Khan, transportation commissioner, gets unfettered praise in a New York bike lane. Frank Bruni looks at the significant legacy she has already built.

Bruni praises the change that Sadik-Kahn has brought to the city, while recognizing that she is a controversial figure among others:

"Since the mayor appointed her in 2007 and she began to bring her agency's work more closely in line with his vision of a greener New York, the city has roughly doubled its miles of bike lanes, to about 500. If you did any biking at all in Manhattan or Brooklyn this summer, you may well have noticed the improvements, including protected bike lanes (ones that separate cyclists entirely from street traffic) on such major arteries as Columbus and First Avenues in Manhattan."
