They really do need to eliminate some of the free on street parking in the area.  It creates countless problems for busses, ambulances, traffic and yes, bikes.  All of the resultant double parking leads to noise and pollution.

The death toll keeps going up and yet the city is not installing protected bike lanes. Where are our elected officials?

I think that the only viable option is no private motorized vehicles.  We need more electric busses and uber vehicles to provide transit for the masses.  For those who want to travel on their own, provide bike lanes.  We'll clean up the air and reduce cyclists deaths in no time!

When is there going to be an end to the carnage? Still we don’t have protected bike lanes.

Protected bike lanes will not end interactions with vehicles at intersections.

Well the problem keeps getting worse and I have not seen the new bike lanes.

It seems the more people are biking the less local politicians care about their safety. I saw the new bike lanes starting to be painted on 82nd Street but not a true protected bike lane. When will these people wake up?

The new bike lanes in the 70's (73 and 74?) are atrocious. ...next to the parked cars and sticking into the middle of the street.  It seems to be designed to get bicyclists hurt.

Without more parking, there is not much that can be done.

Finally some action that agrees with what I have been saying. The only true way to protect cyclists is to create more protected bike lanes and not some painted lines.

The more cyclists there are the more accidents there will be. Do the math.

Look at the results of having these ridiculous unprotected bike lanes in the middle of the road in Queens.

Where is this?  I've never seen bike lanes like this.
