Before some asshole stole my bike last year, I used to lock it on the 57th Street subway station entrance before going into De La Concha for a cigar. But, my bike was pinched, and I no longer had something to lock to the subway station entrance.
Well, sometime since then, the city decided that it didn’t want anybody locking their bikes to the station entrance thing. I’d like to think that it doesn’t want anybody locking their bikes there now that I don’t have a way to participate. I’d like to thank the City of New York for caring.
