As I've mentioned before, I moved back into Manhattan in August. I'm amazed at how fun and useful the Hudson River Greenway is. Since it has so few intersections, I don't have to stop often. I get to my destinations much faster than I'm used to, and that is even when I occasionally overshoot my target. I wish it had exit signs so I know what path to take to get back to the street.
I rode it last night after 11pm, from 91 St to 14 St. I didn't pass a single cyclist going in my direction. A few going north passed. Two cyclists going south passed me. I've heard about the incidents that happened farther north, where it's very dark. But how crazy is this? Seems to me that bad guys have lots of privacy to operate in to commit whatever crimes they're out there for.
