Brooklyn’s Chinatown takes traffic conversion protest to DOT chief’s home


Residents of Brooklyn’s Chinatown rallied with local business owners on Aug. 25 outside of the city transportation commissioner’s new Dumbo condo — the latest in a series of protests against a pair of bike lanes planned for the heart of their neighborhood. 

“There is nothing else that we are able to do,” said Paul Mak, the head of the Brooklyn Chinese-American Association. “This is going to change the rest of our lives, so we have to do whatever we can.”
