I love the Dutch infrastructure shown above, but I don't think the bike lanes protected by parking are really inferior or crappy. Cycling has increased by 275% in NYC the past decade since they started building these lanes. And for the context of Hunter St, and in particular the GO Station, I really think it's the best option - it allows parking to remain on both sides of the street, and it eliminates any car movements through the bike lanes. It would be a slower cycling zone with pedestrians and bikes needing to yield to one another in front of the station, but that's hardly a problem, and is much safer than putting the bike lanes on the street side of the parking.

Other than some road smoothing, so the current parking bumpouts are made flat like the rest of the roadway, this plan can be implemented immediately and only cost us the price of paint, signs and bollards.
