Image 1: Newly constructed protected bike lane on Central Park West, Manhattan. This was constructed following a cyclist death in 2019. It is not completely constructed for the full length, though is planned to be. It’s a really nice bike lane, but has issues with tourist buses parking in it (it’s adjacent to Central Park) as well as delivery vehicles. It also caused an uproar with apartment buildings on CPW as it required the removal of car parks…

Image 2: Aerial view of largely protected southbound bike lane on Columbus Avenue, Manhattan. Is not protected the whole length of Avenue. Protection is generally same width as green bike lane (except adjacent to turning lanes as shown here), but this is because NYC Sanitation Dept needs its snow plows to get through, and won’t buy narrower plows!Central Park West protected bike lane
