 With the first section of the newEighth Ave. bike lane already opento cyclists in the West Village, workrecently began to extend the projectnorth through Chelsea as part of thecity’s plan to separate bikes from trafficup to 23rd St.Over the past couple of weeks, crewshave started construction on a handfulof pedestrian crossings at intersectionsbetween 14th and 23rd Sts., which willbe followed by the installation of a buff-ered “cycle track” lane on the west sideof the avenue. The design divides bikersfrom vehicles by rows of plastic bollardsalong each block, creating a car-freezone for cyclists who had to competewith drivers weaving in and out of thepreviously unprotected lane.The project generated a fair amountof controversy when it was introducedlast summer, raising protests from localmerchants and LGBT advocates fearingpotentially negative impacts on areabusinesses. Now, with the initial effectsof the lane’s implementation startingto trickle down, the consensus amongmany Eighth Ave. retailers is that theircost of doing business just skyrocketed.“It’s going to kill me,” said SteveLadenheim, the owner of Murphy BedXPRESS between 20th and 21st Sts.,who’s been on the same block since1971. “Anybody that has a business onthe west side of the block, I guaranteethey’re going to lose at minimum 30,maybe 50 percent of their business.”One of Ladenheim’s foremost con-cerns, shared by other nearby retailerswho rely on regular deliveries, is whereincoming trucks will be allowed tounload and pickup along the avenue. With restaurants, bars, grocery storesand other delivery-dependent establish-ments dotting the busy stretch, mer-chants fear that the loss of availableparking spaces caused by the bike lanewill damage their viability.
