Bicycle Junkyard

UPDATED 3/14 — Now with more close-ups!


The melting of the snow and ice that blanketed the East Village recently has uncovered not just mounds of litter, but demolished bicycles as well!

Here are some examples I saw yesterday morning, on St. Mark's Place:

Helter-skelter arrangement.

I don't know if you can see it, but one of the bicycles is upside-down:

This elongated bicycle is a mess of twisted and rusted chains:

Here's a close-up:


The bicycle on the left matches the cone at the top/left:

Now that the snow is gone, East Villagers will have a time straightening out the disheveled state of their bicycles. Good thing for Citibikes!

    1. Oh rats! I meant to put in a close-up of that bike last night, but I was so psyched by my paparazzi post that I forgot!
