Who gets credit for new bike racks on Grand Street?


Board member Lee Berman says: Not us.

House committee member Michael Marino says: Nope.

Assistant General Manager Shulie Wollman says: Don’t look at me.

Apparently the City makes it’s own decisions about these things, based on suggestions from residents.

Several racks have been placed outside Cozy Deli, on Madison Street at the entrance to building 2, and along the north side of Grand Street between buildings 1 and 3.

Personally, I like anything that encourages bike riding in the City, and I’ve often wished there were more places to lock my bike up for an hour if I’m running in and out. On the other hand, too many of these make for a cluttered sidewalk, especially if there are bikes locked up permanently.

What do you think of the new bike racks?
