First Citi Bikes docking station casualty*



An EVG reader noted early last evening that someone (or something) broke/smashed (accidentally or otherwise) the glass on the Citi Bikes docking station that arrived a day earlier on East Sixth Street at Avenue B...



A worker in an unmarked van was on the scene replacing what needed to be, uh, replaced, per the reader.

---

* As far as we know. We heard that a truck ran into a docking station on East 11th Street, but never saw any photographic evidence to support this claim.

BREAKING NEWS: Stationary object runs into moving vehicle.

I'm fairly certain parked cars are crashed into all the time. We'll live.

I'm surprised these aren't plastic instead of glass.

And yet six months after Sandy, NYCHA houses on 6th st. and Ave. C are still in need of boiler, not to mention that the Rockaways and Staten Island are still in disarray. Speaks volume of this sanctimonious Citi corporate bikesharing.

Yeah because the bikeshare program is supposed to pay for city housing. Let the infill begin and then repairs will begin.

Why are you going to work every day while the NYCHA apartments arent fixed? Thats right, because its somebody elses job. Blame it on NYCHA (or the circumstances, believe it or not its not posible to fix every single thing that got flooded at once).

Ironic in the extreme for you to refer to the bike share as "sanctimonious"

LOL, you people are hilarious. I hear Bloomberg likes coffee in the morning. Going to hate coffee now?
