Wednesday October 7 is International Walk/Bike to School Day

According to this website, there are 2 events registered in Princeton,
at Johnson Park Elementary and at the Charter School.  That's twice
as many local schools as last year.

Briefly noted:

         The Hoboken system is called Hudson Bike Share and uses the 
         "dockless" technology from nextbike ;  Jersey City is deploying CitiBike.

From The Atlantic's "CityLab" blog:         Bike Commuting: Still on the Rise 

         "New numbers from the League of American Bicyclists show that 
         if you build the lanes, cyclists will come."

The Reign of Recycling
 by John Tierney (NY Times)      Excerpt:

    "When Mayor de Blasio promised to eliminate garbage in New York, 
     he said it was "ludicrous" and "outdated" to keep sending garbage to
     landfills. Recycling, he declared, was the only way for New York to become 
     "a truly sustainable city." But cities have been burying garbage for thousands
     of years, and it's still the easiest and cheapest solution for trash. The recycling 
     movement is floundering, and its survival depends on continual subsidies, sermons
     and policing. How can you build a sustainable city with a strategy that can't even 
     sustain itself?"
