This weekend, several readers sent us photos of vehicles parked next to the new docking station on East Sixth Street at Avenue B...

The actual Citi Bikes will likely arrive on or just before the expected May 27 launch date... Once the bikes arrive, parking next to a docking station won't be possible. (Well, we'll see.)
Anyway, a reader, who wanted to be clear that he wasn't complaining about Citi Bikes, simply asked if it is legal to park next to an unoccupied docking station. Because he has a car, temporarily, and it can be tough to find a place to park around here. (And why would he have a car? To make it easier to visit his mother who's in a nursing home in a place not convenient to public transportation.)
There aren't street signs pointing to any offense by parking next to the docking station ... Along here, there's just the alternate side parking sign ...
Anyone know? Is this a parking offense that deserves a ticket?
