FROM Janette Sadik-Khan
Streetfight Janette Sadik-Khan was Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s transportation commissioner from 2007 to 2013. Under her watch, she led a very public battle to add 400 miles of bike lanes and establish more than 60 pedestrian plazas in the city, most notably -- and controversially -- closing five blocks of Broadway to cars in Times Square.

Sadik-Khan discusses lessons learned from the epic opponents.
