City Building Opens New Indoor Bike Parking Facility

11:46 AM EDT on August 7, 2007

The city bureaucracy got it a little bit backwards, cracking down on bike commuting employees before actually offering them a new place to park their wheels. But this e-mail sent this morning to Dept. of Health employees working at 280 Broadway seems like a step in the right direction.
