Biking Around NYC With Randy “The Ethicist” Cohen

12:40 PM PDT on May 14, 2010

A few years ago, Randy Cohen, who writes the
"Ethicist" column
in the New York Times Magazine, visited the
Streetfilms set for an
interview
about "transportation ethics." For this sequel, we got
out of the studio for a two-wheeled jaunt around Manhattan and popped
him a few more questions.

During our ten-mile journey, Mr. Cohen weighed in on making Central
Park car-free, the ethics of "salmoning"
and stopping for red lights on your bike, and the transformation of our
streets to better serve pedestrians and cyclists. He made no attempt to
hide the incredible "policy crush" he has on NYCDOT chief Janette
Sadik-Khan.
