Bike Shares Bloom on Remsen Street


New York City’s transformation
into Amsterdam is moving forward, as Citi Bike Share stands are currently being installed on the corner of Remsen and Hicks. Additional stations in the neighborhood will include Clark and Henry, Clark and Montague, Clinton and Joralemon, and Borough Hall.

Be Sociable, Share!

    This is awesome. Great example of public-private partnership.

    Great to see.

  • mucow

    So excited!

  • bikebk11

    the one on clark and henry is now installed too. lets get the bikes in! hopefully tourists won’t use the system… get them out of the bike lanes

  • Marathoner

    the one at Clark and Montague is really hard to find, though!

  • David on Middagh

    It can only be in one place, but you have to check to be sure: Schroedinger’s bike stand!

  • markintheHeights

    curious as to what determined that the Montague station is on the sidewalk, and the Clark St station is in the street/parking lane…the sidewalk on the Northeast side of Clark/Henry would have been ideal..

  • Tony

    I hate them. I can now walk out my door and see nothing but bicycles, lucky me. I’m sure we’ll see more graffiti and litter too. The idea is fine – the location is all wrong.

  • Tony

    Nice to see our TARP money well spent.

  • HenryLoL

    I’m sure you realize that 1) the majority of banks were FORCED to take the TARP bailout and 2) the government made a $12 BILLION profit from it’s ‘investment’ in Citi alone… Thanks.

    I see your “hate” has deluded you into ridiculous fears of increased “graffiti and litter”. Idiot.

    I didn’t realize that our neighborhood would be inundated with bike racks and bikes. Are bike racks and bikes now a source of beautification of our neighborhood–I don’t think so. Just what is the advantage and benefit of all these bikes in our neighborhood–on sidewalks, traveling the wrong way on our streets, not obeying traffic signals and regulations. Who exactly will be monitoring this project in our neighborhood. I think this is a ghastly idea.

    completely agree – this is dangerous to park 30 pikes on a residential street that’s full of children playing and they are ugly – huge eyesore in a historic district

  • Joe A

    You would rather see automobiles. Ok.

  • Joe A

    They are not meant to be a source of beautification but rather a source of transportation, each one of which replacing a noisy, polluting, dangerous internal combustion engine. I think that’s a pretty good tradeoff.

  • Joe A

    Aren’t bicycles more in keeping with a historic district than automobiles?

  • Cranberry Beret

    Ha, totally agree! The comments above are so perplexing.

    It’s dangerous to park bikes but not cars??

  • Clintonious Wow

    Haters gonna hate! But I love the bikes.

  • Clintonious Wow

    Children shouldn’t play in the street!

    Have you forgotten the ruin the recession, now in its fifth year, has brought to millions of lives both here and abroad because of the criminal activities of banks?; activities that have brought absurdly few prosecutions?

    Your name seems apt – a grinning idiot.

  • Clintonious Wow

    The reason is probably that placement on the northeast side would put the bikes across the street from the bike lane, which would cause problems for bikes, cars, and pedestrians.

  • Clintonious Wow

    zOMG, I am the real Clintionious Wow & I didn’t post this. I call troll!

  • Hicks St Guy

    Henry, don’t waste your breath, people like Tony who critcized TARP never know the facts, too much Fox News, I figure.

  • Tony

    I was making a joke, but why are the two of you so eager to suck up to one of the world’s great criminal organizations?

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UlsiLOnWCoI Arch Stanton

    Thats idiotic, I never see the “streets full of children playing” at leas not in the last 20 years. And how are stations/bikes any “uglier” than the modern cars parked on the street?

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UlsiLOnWCoI Arch Stanton

    “one of the world’s great criminal organizations” do you mean Citi Bank or Fox News?

  • Tony

    Interesting how no one can address my central objection: that these were put in a terrible location. I have no objection to bike stations, just not here. Arch Stanton, if I don’t see these racks covered with those marker scribblings that adorn mailboxes, lampposts, and fireboxes everywhere, I’ll gladly concede to you that I was wrong. But I doubt I’ll have to.

  • Tony

    Use cliches much?

  • Tony

    I don’t particularly like cars either – my block is especially ugly on Tuesday holidays when people can park on both sides of Remsen – but that’s a hopeless fight. Now I have to contend with cars AND bikes. This is too much for a small residential street. That is my point.
