Its a New York City first. Some on-street car parking has been decommissioned in favor of bicycle parking near the Bedford Avenue subway stop in Williamsburg. This is a welcome change for cyclists since the area has been the scene of NYPD clipping incidents in the past (via). By creating this new area, bikes are locked out of people’s way on the sidewalk. It is good to see that the city is starting to provide an amount of bike parking commensurate with the number of cyclists. Let’s hope this is just the first of many bike parking zones.
