Bike corrals installed on Vanderbilt Avenue
Posted: October 3, 2014 - 9:00am


The Department of Transportation yesterday installed three new bike corrals on Vanderbilt Avenue. The corrals had been requested by the owners of Milk Bar, Branded Saloon and Bar Chuko. A survey of almost 400 residents and business owners conducted by PHNDC found that 96% approved of the addition of the bike corrals to Vanderbilt Avenue; their installation was approved by Community Board 8 in September.

Although merchants hosting the bike corrals in front of their businesses are obligated to maintain them with plantings and keep the curb area clean, any cyclist may park there, regardless of whether he or she is a patron of the hosting merchant.

Thanks to Bar Chuko, Branded and Milk Bar for their initiative to make Vanderbilt Avenue safer and more friendly to cyclists!
