Hi! My name is Liam Jeffries, and this is The Cycling Straphanger.

The Cycling Straphanger is my personal blog where I lay out my thoughts and commentary about a variety of topics, the biggest of which being what could make New York City a better place. Subjects covered in my posts vary, from long reads describing my urban planning ideas, to smaller commentary pieces. These posts aim to express as clearly as possible a vision of New York that’s more affordable, equitable, and beneficial to all.

Unless otherwise stated, all views expressed on this website are my own, and I hope for all readers to take away from this a vision of a more livable New York.
