Bike Delivery Report

The 2nd E72NA Delivery Bike Report Card is here. 

Please support those establishments who are good safety partners with the neighborhood. 

If your favorite restaurant is still using E-bikes to deliver, please ask them to STOP, in order to make our streets safer for pedestrians.

We have worked closely with Council Members Kallos and Garodnick to coordinate follow-up training and enforcement action with DOT and the NYPD 19th Precinct.  

 

Second Avenue Subway

With the completion and opening of Phase 1 of the Second Avenue Subway, we are thrilled to see less congestion on Second Avenue, the restoration of our sidewalks and the improvement of business conditions for our shopkeepers and restaurants. 

 

Citibikes

The installation of Citibikes docking stations on the Upper East Side has been completed. Crosstown bike lanes have been installed. If you are interested in learning more about this visit CB8 to find out when the next Transportation Committee meeting will be held.  

 

Second Avenue Streetscape

E72NA is actively working with city agencies to request sidewalk tree plantings on the westside of Second Avenue.  We are also working closely with Council Member Dan Garodnick's office to procure additional trash cans for the west side of Second Avenue, especially for the corner nearest the escalator entrance to the subway. 

 

We are advocating for an M15 Select Bus Stop at 72nd Street on First and Second Avenues to better serve our Senior residents and those with mobility issues who cannot easily rely on access to the subway or walk the long distance to the closest SBS stops at 68th and 79th Streets. We are continuing to work with NYC Transit and our Elected Officials to get the stop implemented. This issue was covered by Michael Scotto of NY1, see here

Select Bus Stop

 

Due to the blocking of Second Avenue garbage pick-up locations during the Second Avenue Subway construction, coupled with too few garbage cans, the sidewalks along East 72nd Street were littered with trash. The problem was covered in a news segment by Andrew Siff of NBC 4 New York
