You know what New York City needs? MORE BICYCLE RACKS! Even though I don’t own a bike (but plan to soon), I seriously feel for my fellow peddlers who very often have no place to park their wheels. Apparently David Byrne of Talking Heads feels their pain too.
Byrne is helping city-dwellers park it by designing a range of arty bicycle racks throughout the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn. What…no Queens?
The nine installations will come in all different shapes and sizes, ranging from a man to a dollar sign, and will later go on to be sold as pieces of art. David says he came up with the idea to help promote a Department of Transportation competition to design indoor and outdoor bike racks.
So from all of us here at Ecorazzi we’d like to be the first to say: HEY DAVID…NICE RACK!!
