About Doug

Doug Gordon is a writer, TV producer, safe streets advocate and passionate believer in cities for people.

He has written for The New Republic, Salon, CurbedThe New York Daily News and Streetsblog. He is frequently quoted in the press about New York's livable streets revolution and has appeared on NY1's Inside CityHallNowThis News and an upcoming series for Vox Media on the future of cities. He's also one third of the hosting team behind the popular podcast The War on Cars.

As a TV producer with credits for PBS, ABC, Discovery, History, Travel and NatGeo, Doug knows how to tell a good story. He has advised nonprofits and mobility companies on media and communications strategies that make the case for safer, smarter streets. People for Bikes called him “a master of images that subvert anti-bike stereotypes.”

Doug is a tireless advocate for safe streets for cyclists and pedestrians and helped establish New York's "LPI bill," which makes people on bikes safer at intersections. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife Leora and their children Galit and Zeb, who really enjoy it when their dad rides them around on his WorkCycles Fr8.
