Marty Markowitz Is So Mad About Bike Lanes He Sings About It

The City Council hearing yesterday was the first chance local politicians had to formally question transportation commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan on the city's development and enforcement of bike lanes. You know, those things that Marty Markowitz has said are ruining Prospect Park West, turning New York into some kind of Amsterdam. Obviously, Markowitz would take this occasion to break out an old standard from The Sound of Music to communicate his position, with modified words to suit his purpose: “These are a few of my favorite lanes.” Because Markowitz knows his way around YouTube videos for his pet projects, you can actually listen to a rendition of it here.
