Closing Bell: LIC, Astoria Bike Lanes Getting Makeover


Queens might not have Citi Bike yet, but bikers in Long Island City and Astoria are getting new bike lanes this summer, the Queens Courier reports. The bike lane along Vernon Boulevard will become a two-way protected lane and is getting a new buffer and will be painted green. Another bike lane along Rainey Park in Astoria will be created, which will free up 35 parking spots along 34th Avenue and 33rd Road.
