November 28, 2011 Weather: Morning Clouds, Afternoon Sun, High of 65 Degrees.

Notices:
We put up a new calendar of events for this week, including the big Winter’s Eve Festival tonight (more on that here).

All of Central Park’s lawns have closed for the winter, including Strawberry Fields and the Great Lawn (which is open for cross-country skiing when it snows).

News:
A bicyclist is suing a pedestrian she hit in Central Park after she says the pedestrian stepped into the bike path. The woman who was hit had her elbow shattered, but the bicyclist, triathlete Sabine von Sengbusch, claims in her suit that she suffered “great physical pain and mental anguish” and wants the pedestrian to pay up.

Residents who live on Riverside Boulevard, the street fronting the luxury developments from 59th Street to 72nd Street overlooking the Hudson River, are upset about the newly opened road that connects the boulevard to 72nd Street and the Henry Hudson Parkway on-ramp. They say it’s making traffic crazy. However, their complaints have been relatively quiet so far. Some old-schol Upper West Siders are suggesting they maybe raise a ruckus. (NY Times)
