NYC Parking Taste Treats

 

On my way from the LaGuardia to the hotel, I came across this covered bike parking near a subway stop near the end of the Pulaski Bridge. Parking demand is certainly a key indicator of the health of the bike culture anywhere. This full covered parking was surrounded by even more full uncovered racks.

I just love these old delivery bikes.

Pretty genius kid carrier.

I saw quite a few Dutch bikes in New York.

Commercial off-street bike parking? Pretty cool, and I actually saw someone using it.

    I guess paid bike parking is a ways off in Milwaukee…we all know people who would pass on going to a destination if they were charged $1 to park an automobile.

      Exactly d’Andre. Parking (for cars) in Milwaukee is underpriced and too plentiful. It is one of the great unspoken of subsidies for people who drive motor vehicles. In general, I think every car requires 5 parking spaces. But if you live in New York, or Chicago, where parking is priced more according to market demand and demand is high, perhaps paying $1 per day for secure bike parking sounds like a deal.
