David Meyer shares news of a new Streetfilms offering that explores the newly opened protected bike lane on 111th Street in Queens.

The project, completed this month, was the result of years of hard work and advocacy by the community. "Working with Council Member Julissa Ferreras-Copeland, advocates from Immigrant Movement International, Make the Road New York, and Transportation Alternatives pushed for a redesign that would narrow the pedestrian crossings and install a two-way protected bike lane" in 2014, according to Meyer. Mayor Bill de Blasio approved the project in March 2017, and the new bike lane is now open for public use. See for yourself below.
