Time’s Up Events

Time’s Up! Accepted into Permanent Archival Collection at NYU Tamiment Library.

Time’s Up! is excited to announce that our remarkable 22-year history is currently being archived at the Tamiment LIbrary at New York University.

Gothamist
New York University

Our uniquely effective style of direct action- combining fun with education- is document in 22 years of calendars introducing hundreds of different themed group bike rides that have encouraged new riders and advocacy which have in turn put pressure on the city to create the sustainable infrastructures , including the bike lanes that we now see emerging all over the city.
Early street posters, dating back to the 80′s, announcing events to defend our First Amendment rights and promote community gardens, public spaces, green alternatives, and a myriad of other outreach, education and promotional resources will be archived in the collection.

  • I bought six times as many as I did last week. I know that I bought three last week. Apply the math, and you know that I bought 18 this week.

    You say I bought six times more than I did last week, and I am not sure how to apply the math. If I try to fit logic to it I get 21, which is seven times as much.

    Math is a science of precision. Well-phrased English can be just as precise and clearly understood.

    Unfortunately, our public schools assign literary works that are filled with profanity that is not allowed on television for a fifth-grade class (classKC.org) and don’t teach precise language skills anymore.

    I have no problem with telling you that I made a six-fold increase in purchases this week as a replacement for telling you that I bought six times as many this week as last. I agree with the first commenter on that point.
