Bikes in Buildings

Bicycles have a home outside the Center for Architecture, but many buildings don’t provide bicycle storage or access.

This morning, I attended a rally on the steps of City Hall to promote Intro 38, the “Bikes in Buildings” bill. This bill would require building owners and managers to provide “reasonable” access to their buildings for bicycles, just as they allow access to people with strollers, handcarts, or other bulky items. Small steps like this will increase the convenience of bicycling to work and in general, prevent the threat of theft and damage to bikes, and make New York a more bicycle-friendly city.

Do you think there’s a place for bicycles in every New York City building?

For more info on this campaign, visit Transportation Alternatives‘ site, and stay tuned as a hearing on the bill will be scheduled this fall.
