From the Daily News:
It just got a little easier to bike, sightsee and eat your way through Queens.
The city published a biking map last week dubbed "Queens Around the World," with several routes that allow cyclists to soak in notable sites and local cuisine.
City Planning Commissioner Amanda Burden called it an ultimate insider's guide.
"The rich diversity of our neighborhoods make the city different from other cities in the world," Burden said. "This gives people destinations and shows them how to get there."
Funded by federal grant dollars, the map is part of a larger campaign to get more New Yorkers to use bicycles as a means of transportation. Burden said plans for a Bronx map are in the works and hopes to create similar ones for the other boroughs.
The Queens map includes four routes with highlights from nine different neighborhoods in the borough.
Let's see... biking, restaurants, soaking in vibrant diversity...we know who this is geared toward. I am offended that tax money went into producing this garbage. Air quality is not going to improve because a yupster pedals his ass from LIC to Corona for empanadas instead of taking the train. How about getting the trucks off Grand Avenue so I don't choke on diesel fumes when I go to the supermarket? DOT already got federal money for that but hasn't done squat with it.
