    New York Magazine

    There is an "cycling" article in the Aug 1-8, 2005 Issue, page 56, "The Everything Guide to Cycyling In and Out of Town". I'll step back now and let you all comment

    what is up with two conflicting suggestions for the Top Ten City Survival Skills:

    "6. Avoid the most dangerous streets. Messengers single out Herald Square; Canal and Bowery; Broadway and Union Square West; E. 23rd St. and Park Avenue; and the Holland Tunnel area.

    7. Take shortcuts. The fastest way downtown is Broadway. To get crosstown, take 14th, 23rd, or 34th—they have multiple lanes. The Park Avenue tunnel is a quick if sketchy way to buy ten midtown blocks. "

    Broadway is a cyclists' no-go. Generally the best way to go more than 20-25 blocks in any direction is just to use one of the wider peripheral avenues (10th ave, 1st ave) or the east river/hudson river pathways. Really, any of the central avenues like 5th or 7th are unpleasant to ride down at any time of the day.
