While the neon green bike lane recently painted on Henry Street in Brooklyn Heights has set off quite the frisson of blogger delight, the Department of Transportation has been quietly experimenting with different bike lane colors in Brooklyn for some time.
We thought we'd put these three choices together for comparison:
a: (upper left) The brightest, shiniest green possible
b: (middle right) Sky blue, on Jay Street
c: (lower left) Blue-green, on Henry Street south of Atlantic
Bearing in mind that the green lane is freshly painted and will eventually fade, which would you choose? Take our poll in the sidebar to the right.
