I think that "condemned" is the wrong word. One way streets are not all bad.

If all we are going to get is incremental, minor change, such as the new Herkimer and Charlton bike lanes, then the next step for those streets is eliminating rat-running "cut through" car drivers. This means a mandatory left turn from Herkimer onto McNab with the last block of Herkimer from McNab to James (where there is no cycling infrastructure) being converted to two-way. This is what was done one block further south, on Aberdeen.

Similarly, the last block of Charlton between James and McNab would be converted to two-way, with bollards at Charlton and McNab preventing rat-running car drivers from cutting through any further to the west.

Of course, people walking or cycling could always go straight through.
