In front of City Hall, a man plays the steel drums in front of the ZipCar tent. Increased access to the birthright of every citizen (the automobile) was advocated. Free watermelon was served.

Nearby a person reminds us (via bumper sticker) to drive safely, while parked in a painted bike lane.

The placard in his window lets us know that this person is a hero, rather than an ordinary disgrace.

Back at Etsy Labs, time for the deliveries (that’s the sidewalk).

UPS on the sidewalk

Also near the Labs, signs that Brooklyn’s repressed SUV-owning minority are joining forces and taking back the sidewalks.

Meanwhile, on Brooklyn Bridge Boulevard, a woman is brutally killed.

If it occurs to anyone that traffic should not be hurtling through Brooklyn at speed, they don’t speak up.
