David Byrne bike racks

I know that these aren’t new, but I’m still pretty jealous that New York gets all of these amazing bike racks designed by David Byrne.

Byrne designed each bike rack to be representative of the neighborhood it was installed in. What would these bike racks look like if they were designed for our city?

    Those are, indeed, wicked. I am appropriately jealous.

    Obviously, the Valencia Street rack would look like someone on a bicycle. The Capp St. racks would be a combination of the Olde Times Square and The Jersey. The 16th St. and The 24th St. racks would be shaped like a handgun. Or a burrito.

    How do you shape a bike rack like a beard?

    These are rad.

    I’m not a clever man, but I think Chinatown should be one of those tall grocery carts. FiDi can steal the Wall Street one. Noe Valley is obviously a stroller.

    They did design a couple for Treasure Island, but they mainly looked like someone ran in to the regular upside-down U ones with their car: http://sfist.com/2010/12/23/new_artist-designed_bike_racks_inst.php#photo-1http://sfist.com/2010/12/23/new_artist-designed_bike_racks_inst.php

    usually ombudsmen are volunteers. the first question is around the question of locations, how you pick where you want to go. certified nursing assistant cna salaries tulsa ok individuals usually want the np simply because they are not as rushed as medical professionals and have the time to give the interest that applied to be given in the common practitioners office.
