NY Post: The Bike Stops Here!

Today’s New York Post cover story is on the “well-heeled” NYC residents who have been able to get Citi Bike stations either completely relocated or partially removed. As of now “at least 10″ stations have been affected, nine of which are in Manhattan and one in Brooklyn Heights—specifically 60 Remsen St. The man in this photo is attorney Steven Sladkus, who, according to the article, has helped clients get rid of three stations.

Here’s the full list of bike stations the Post says have been moved:

* IAC Building, 550 W. 18th St. — Moved from Barry Diller’s company headquarters to parking lot across the street

* Condos, 83 Barrow St. — Moved from southeast corner of Barrow and Hudson to the northwest corner

* Office building, 494 Eighth Ave. — Moved from south side of West 35th to West 33rd Street and Eighth Avenue

* Condos, 99 Bank St. — Partially removed from the building’s entrance

* Condos, 300 E. 55th St. — Removed altogether

* Condos, 60 Remsen St., Brooklyn — Moved to Hicks Street, just north of Remsen, in front of Dellarocco’s restaurant

* Condos, 304 Spring St. — Removed altogether

* Condos, 175 W. 13th St. — removed

* Town houses at 493 W. 22nd St. — Moved from north side of street to south side in front of Clement Clark Moore Park

* Condos near West 57th St. and Seventh Avenue — Rack near Carnegie Hall cut from map before installation

    Really? We can do this? Cool! I’m going to sue to move some roads and expressways.

    How long is the Post going to continue this crusade? You’d think even their readers would be getting sick of it by now.

    The Post, as always, has been smokin’ something. Bet they’re really sorry they were caught flat footed by the latest news about Snowden…

    The rack infront of 60 Remsen was moved because it idid not allow enough sidewalk space at its easternmost end. Not because some jackwad made it go away.

    The IAC building rack was moved because where it was initially placed pretty much guaranteed it would be taken out by one of the MTA buses that turns the corner there every ten-fifteen minutes.

    I expect the location on Front in DUMBO to be moved as well, perhaps not until after it’s cleared out by a semi trying to turn from Washington onto Front.

    The citi bike station at Hicks and Atlantic in front of Tazza should be moved. If you grab a bike from this location you have limited options:
    1. Walk the bike against traffic to State St to start you journey.
    2. Bike with traffic to South of Atlantic where there are no citi bike stations.

    Despite the biased spin of the Post story, this is a positive for the bike share program. We always said that the locations of the stations would need to be evaluated once they are up and running to see if any adjustments need to be made for safety or reasons of practicality. It is good to see that the program is flexible and can adapt to real life circumstances.

    It’s a tight location as well. I know originally the rack was supposed to be on the sidewalk. I just can’t think of a spot to relocate it to.
