Bike rack that housed iconic blizzard bike is... gone!

Readers continue to keep tabs on Caffe Cotto, currently undergoing a gut renovation on Avenue C at Eighth Street...

Meanwhile! EV Grieve reader AC notes something is missing along the sidewalk here on Eighth Street... something that you attach bicycles to...




Why yes... you remember this iconic photo that became one of the iconic shots of the iconic Blizzard of the iconic Dec. 26, 2010....






Perhaps there was a reason the bike went missing last month. Bikes can sense these things, you know.

So the snow is gone (though I think parts of 11th Street still haven't been plowed). The bike is gone. The bike rack is gone. But we have our memories.

Anyway, people are upset, though not really. Still, someone etched this into the Cotto doorway...
