In this hilarious series by artist Kurt McRobert, we take a look at all the different kinds of New York City bikers. The illustrations show everything from a fashion forward cyclist, with her fedora hat and red pumps cruising down the streets of Soho, to the fanny pack sporting tourists, with their classic I heart NY shirts, stopping traffic to take their shots.

Really funny!

Ten years ago, photographers James and Karla Murray began documenting the unique storefronts that define New York as a wonderfully diverse place to live. After a decade had passed, the pair went back to the same locations, only to sadly discover that many of the charming family-owned stores had been pushed out and replaced by large chains, banks, and generic businesses. The Murrays documented these rapid changes with side-by-side photographs compiled in a book entitled Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York.

urban design interventions: additions of trees, plantings, benches, curb extensions, lighting, sidewalk widening, and building setbacks to help greening the pedestrian environment throughout East Midtown.  The conceptual designs introduce key elements that make public space effective and enjoyable – shade, places to sit, and places to meet.

Trains are cool. Buildings are important. But here at This Big City we think people are the best thing about cities. That’s why we’ve spent the last five years sharing stories from urban communities across the globe. The communities painting bike infrastructure, turning streets into parklets, organizing family activities, starting urban farms, and standing up for pedestrian rights. And we want to do more. If you want to help us, head here and share your feedback.
