NYC’s First Bike-Parking Protected, Protected Bike Lane!

Posted by Infra on Monday, April 29th, 2013

NYC’s First Bike-Parking Protected, Protected Bike Lane! from Streetfilms on Vimeo.

A few years ago, it was pretty big news when on-street bike parking or a bike oasis were installed in any city. Today, though it is always welcome news, it hardly merits a report.

However, on New York City’s 9th Avenue protected bike lane (which back in the day was NYC’s first) three bike oasises have been installed between 36th and 40th streets. Having bike-parking replacing a car parking spot in the floating lane is definitely a first for New York City, and quite possibly the first in the United States.

And as we found businesses seem to already like them. We filed a short report.
