Bikers, rejoyce! The city is in the process of installing a bunch of new, "NYC"-branded circular bike racks all along Seventh Avenue in the North Slope. The design is reminiscent of the one that won the CityRacks competition a few years ago.
The worker above told me that eventually the racks will pop up all the way down the avenue. At the moment, I counted six that have been installed already (down to about Garfield), and foundations for many more are already in place.
