The cyclist you love to hate. While often dismissed as a dangerous fashion trend, this cyclist yearns for simplicity and harmony in the gritty chaos of NYC. They can be easily recognized by their brightly colored, brake-less bicycles and non-stop pedaling.
The middle-aged cyclist with something to prove. You bet they can race AND they have a the expendable income to buy a $5,000 bike and matching tights with the padded butt crack. They will always be seen training for the next big race, riding laps around Central Park.
This cyclist will never be seen wearing a helmet, because "helmet hair" is way more embarassing than a crushed skull. They are most frequently seen walking their bikes along Bedford Ave, wearing Ray-Bans or ironically smoking cigarettes and talking on their iPhones while trying to ride up the Williamsburg Bridge.
This cyclist has no time for bullshit. There are long plastic tubes to be delivered to tall buildings. As highly evolved utilitarians who have a fearless and instinctual command NYC traffic, they flow down Broadway like fish downstream. However, their cunning is too often the cause of their demise.
Don't be fooled by his khaki shorts and extra white teeth. This man is dedicated. He can often be seen hauling up to 50 lbs of disinterested progeny around Prospect Park in a vain attempt to strengthen the bond between father and child.
While longing for the bygone days of cheap Soho lofts and "happenings," this retired feminist spends her days volunteering at the local food co-op and growing her own in "herbs" in her rooftop greenhouse.

Situated just off Prospect Park in Windsor Terrace, Krupa Grocery has got your coffee, brunch and dinner needs covered. First, you have a difficult choice to make: house-made cappuccino ($4.25) or kombucha on tap ($6)? Krupa also offers a full cocktail menu, extensive wine list and plenty more draft ciders and beers. Starters like the chicken and the egg—chicken liver pate paired with pickled eggs ($11)—and risotto balls ($10) appear on both the brunch and dinner menus. But again, you’ll have to make a choice: the breakfast gnocchi with eggs, bacon, black kale and kabocha squash ($14) at brunch or the flatiron steak with potato-cabbage latkes and horseradish creme fraiche ($29) at dinner? If you opt for an evening meal, you can also order sweets from the dessert menu. Think brown sugar pot de creme ($10), carrot cake whoopie pies ($9) or a tasting flight of three varieties of fernet served with a homemade biscotti ($15).
