Citi Share docking stations arrive on St. Mark's Place at 1 a.m., quickly tagged
EVG regular Stephen Popkin notes that the Citi Bikes docking stations arrived on the north side of St. Mark's Place between First Avenue and Second Avenue (in front of the former Holiday Cocktail Lounge) ... around 1 a.m. (Per Stephen's estimation, the installers were working quietly...)
Plans called for 31 docks here in a no-parking area of the street.
Well, later, someone felt compelled to write RAMEN on the docking station...
...and another angle via Shawn Chittle...
Meanwhile! On East Fifth Street at Avenue C... EVG reader Mish noted that workers installed the docking station here around 11 p.m.
Per Mish: "We're already taxed as it is parking wise, and the street is a dead end. Really failing to see the logic in this choice of location. I'm not sure they realize how much of an adverse effect this is going to have on commuters in the neighborhood."
