Bike photos in the New York Times

In this Sunday's New York Times, there's a good collection of bicycle photos from Bill Cunningham for the On the Street section.
Cities are being transformed into weekend playgrounds for the summer months. In Manhattan, imagine Broadway, from Central Park to Macy's being turned into a mall for pedestrians and riders. It seems like everyone, with or without a safety helmet, is on wheels. Custom tricycles and bicycles—a few carrying flowers or packages and one carrying a beloved pet, Emmett—are the new status vehicles in a city that always goes out of its way to be on the go.
Isn't it time Fairfax had a summer streets event? There's been talk of closing Maple Ave in Vienna to traffic on a summer Sunday, between East St and Lawyers Rd. Traffic could be routed onto Church St. Both Spokes, Etc. and bikes@vienna are located along that section. It's a short stretch, but it would be a start.
