Proposal for CityRacks Bike Parking Outside Teany Et Al.

Posted on: November 30th, 2012 at 6:28 am by

By most accounts, the CityRacks pilot program is gaining some traction. More local businesses are expressing interest in “sponsoring” newfangled parking spaces outside their establishments. There are presently two within the confines of Community Board 3 – MUD Coffee and Blue Stockings – both of which are seemingly popular with bikers. More may soon be on the way.

Of particular note is the application by the recently re-branded Teanyssimo at 90 Rivington. The tea spot already fashions an eclectic curbside collection of two-wheelers, supposedly used for delivery runs. Now the establishment is seeking to place a CityRack out front. But they’re not alone. Two other East Village are also on the December agenda for CityRacks – the 4th Street Food Co-op and Continuum Cycles.

Judging by prior CB3 voting record on the matter, this should sail through the system. The transporation subcommittee will discuss the matter on December 12.
