Check out the Time’s Up! PlaNYC NOW zine by Sabrina Jones published in the Institute for Urban Design’s “New York 2030 Notebook”.
It’s 2008 in New York City, and non-polluting transportation is increasing every year; bicycles, hybrid vehicles, pedicabs and work bikes are emerging everywhere. Mayor Bloomberg has initiated a plan for greening the city by 2030, called PlaNYC2030. With a bike-friendly D.O.T. commissioner in place, and long-planned bike lane expansion moving ahead, why wait until 2030. The time to act is NOW.
Time’s Up! environmental group was chosen as a contributor to the Institute for Urban Design’s, New York 2030 Notebook, which includes a series of essays on novel research and ideas from a diverse group of individuals and organizations focused on PlaNYC.
Time’s Up! has been making effective change for the last 20 years. We believe that bicycling is a key solution to decreasing congestion and reducing air pollution, accidents, obesity and asthma. Bicycling, community gardens and public space are the gateway to a human-scaled, sustainable and livable city for all.
