This Week: Help Choose Bike-Share Locations in CB 4

The big activity on the livable streets calendar this week — and perhaps for weeks to come — is bike-share station selection. The first local workshop, hosted by Manhattan Community Board 4 and West Side elected officials, will begin to determine where stations will be located in Hell’s Kitchen and Chelsea. One of the major questions to work out is whether bike-share stations will be placed on the sidewalk or in what are now parking spaces. Encompassing both Penn Station and the Port Authority Bus Terminal as well as the hard-to-reach Hudson River waterfront, CB 4 should have some very popular bike-share sites.

  • Tuesday: People who live and work on Manhattan’s West Side can help choose where bike-share stations will go in Hell’s Kitchen and Chelsea at a workshop hosted by Community Board 4. 6:00 p.m.
  • Wednesday: Second Avenues Sagas author Ben Kabak interviews former MTA open data expert Sarah Kaufman about how technology is reshaping public transportation, part of a series at the New York Transit Museum. 6:30 p.m.

Citi Bike Will Expand Uptown With Its Too-Sparse Station Network

|
The good news: Citi Bike is expanding up to 130th Street later this year. The bad news: Stations in Morningside, Harlem, and East Harlem are going to be more spread out than the bike-share network below 59th Street. As with last year’s additions to the bike-share network, the longer walking distances between stations will make these expansions less convenient for Citi Bike […]
