HarperCollins Adds Employee Bike Parking in Midtown

Details are vague, but it looks like we can add book publisher HarperCollins to the list of New York companies providing bike parking. This office memo came in today over the tipwire:

As we continue to integrate HarperGreen into our workplace, we are excited to announce that New York employees are invited to join the new bicycle rack program, located at our 10 East 53rd Street building.

Participating employees will be allowed to park their bikes in a designated area during work hours. Due to building limitations, we have only a few slots, so this program will rotate on a monthly schedule to allow anyone interested to participate.

With the Bikes in Buildings Bill still in limbo at City Hall, it’s nice to see another employer stepping up of its own accord.
