Eyes on the Street: Jackson Heights’ Beautiful New Bike Corral

Spring has sprung, and with it came a new on-street bike corral on 82nd Street in Jackson Heights, near Roosevelt Avenue. Clarence from Streetfilms sent over these great pictures. The corral, which replaces one car parking space, has seven racks (for 14 bikes) and two planters. It is maintained by the 82nd Street Partnership business improvement district and was supported by Queens Community Board 4 in a 32-2 vote in March.

Perhaps the most succinct summation comes from the minutes of CB 4's full board meeting last month. The report from District Manager Christian Cassagnol noted that DOT and "the 82nd Street BID had installed the bike corral, which looked beautiful."
