@SamLaffey @ErokEric @Jessi_said_what But her quote was allowed by journalist in a publication. I get the point of the project, and again, I like the message of her essay, But that claim about bike lanes is incorrect, it should have been omitted, Her essay was great without it.
@ErokEric @SamLaffey @Jessi_said_what I think this gets at my main criticism. I understand perception of bike lanes to many in community. But it's a journos job to fact check perception to see if accurate. To let someone say "bike lanes in PGH are in tandem w/ gentrification" w/o noting the facts is bad journalism.
@SamLaffey @Jessi_said_what I stand by my statement that the quote is bad. Bike lanes have in fact, not occurred in tandem with gentrification.
@Jessi_said_what @SamLaffey There are only 3 lanes that could be applied to this claim, East Liberty Ave,, Negley ave, and a small section on Butler street. and the EL lanes were imputed to slow traffic down, because cars sped on those roads
@Jessi_said_what @SamLaffey I think my takeaway was that I agree with the message of this article. CP reports on the same issues and I am passionate about those too. But to use quote about bike lanes as a marker of gentrification or in tandem with gentrification is not accurate.
