Surely inspired by the brave actions of Mount Pleasant Town Hall, the NY Times blog City Room reports that the Department of Transportation installed a bike rack at the Bedford Avenue stop in Williamsburg today.
City Room writes: Williamsburg, a haven for hipsters and Hasidim [Editor’s Note: The Times, right on top of the social trends] has a new distinction today. The Brooklyn neighborhood is the first where parking spaces have been removed to make way for bike racks.
City Room says nine racks were installed there in Hipster Heaven, accommodating 30 bikes. It’s part of New York’s City Racks program, which has installed almost 4,000 racks over the past decade.
