More bike racks for Second Avenue and East 9th Street



A few weeks after the city installed new bike racks on (and around!) Second Avenue and East Ninth Street, EVG Second Avenue and East Ninth Street Bike Rack Correspondent Terry Howell notes the arrive of several more (bike racks).



And here's a bonus photo of trucks double-parking near the other new bike racks yesterday morning... (not that the bike racks caused this, of course...)

There are a lot of these new bike racks on Ludlow Street (from Stanton to Delancey) and a number are in Soho too.

I'm sure these racks would be useful if they weren't immediately taken over the the delivery guys.

They should remove some auto parking and create a loading zone during those hours. That would clear up some of the traffic.

Does anyone know how the city decides the placement of these racks? I live in a small building and wonder if they contact the building's owner first or just start drilling one morning and that is that. I guess my point is I wouldn't want one and wonder if I have a right to say no to it, anyone have any info?

These should not be on the sidewalk. Sidewalk placement obstructs pedestrians on the already overly congested sidewalks, and encourages riders to ride on the sidewalk to and from their "parking spot".

Oh goodie, just what we need, more street furniture for bikes so they can be chained to them and left to rot.

Just more stupid waste by this city.
How many (bicycle lock-up) poles did they just jack hammer out of the side walk a couple years ago, at tremendous financial cost. All they had to do was remove the meter heads and replace them with some other kind of bike lock security head (like more intelligent cities do.)
