After the recent re-paving and proper bike-lane addition to Vernon Boulevard in the heart of Long Island City, now there are these nice new CITYRACKS bike racks popping up everywhere. Well, newish as in being installed, but as you can see from the sticker on the rack these things were fabricated circa 2007-2008! It’s nice to know they were thinking about bike racks that long ago (i.e. when George Bush Jr. was in office) and it was just a matter of time before they got around to my lovely hood.
