I love these things. These things are being installed all over the NYC. What are they? Well obviously it is a bike rack. What are they called? Well they are called CityRacks. I think they are a cool addition to the neighborhood. So if you want one in your neighborhood click the following to apply. http://www.nyc.gov/html/dot/html/bicyclists/bikerack.shtml
