Reader Mike Epstein sends in this shot of DOT bike corral construction on Ninth Street between First and Second Avenues in Manhattan. It's good to see this treatment expanding. Corrals that accommodate multiple bike racks offer a much more efficient use of street space than a one-car parking spot. They make streets safer by improving sight lines, and they don't leave cyclists and pedestrians fighting over sidewalk scraps.

Looks like a couple of bikes are already in the queue for this one.
