On a sunny day at Nostrand Playground in Brooklyn an NYC DOT employee speaks to two members of the public at a Biketober outreach event. Next to them, two men are repairing a bicycle, one of them is working on the breaks while the other is pumping air into the back tire. A fifth man stands watching the men repairing the bicycle.
