New York City's Department of Transportation has proposed new bike lanes for a number of streets in northern Manhattan, according to DNAinfo New York. The DOT created designs for the lanes and plans to revise them after the board's traffic and transportation committee takes a look at them. The DOT will reportedly present them to the board again in the fall.

As DNAinfo notes, this move has been years in the making after community leaders asked the city for bike lanes two years ago. According to DOT spokesman Scott Gastel the following streets would get bike lanes under the proposed designs: West 179th and West 180th streets between Amsterdam Avenue and Cabrini Boulevard, Cabrini Boulevard between West 179th Street and Fort Tryon Park, Fort George Hill between Fairview Avenue and Dyckman Street, and St. Nicholas Avenue between Broadway and Dyckman Street.

Do you think the city should be putting in more bike lanes?
