From CBS 2:
After an insult from the city, Nancy Gruskin finally got some respect.
Last year, Gruskin’s husband, Stuart, was fatally injured by a reckless bike rider. Gruskin became concerned that the city was moving so quickly to expand bicycling and wrote the mayor about safety issues and asked for a meeting with the Department of Transportation.
Transportation Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan responded with a form letter addressed to Gruskin’s dead husband and met privately with the woman for an hour Monday.
“There was an apology and that was nice,” Gruskin told CBS 2′s Tony Aiello.
