It’s a pretty good spread, with stations placed in a checkerboard pattern every 2 or 3 avenues and blocks. Perhaps this will alleviate some of the current demand on the Midtown stations once the UES ones are deployed later this year.
As expected, not everybody on the UES is happy about the stations.
Complaints touched on the aesthetic horror of adding bike-share to historic districts, as well as its potential to cause traffic congestion, pollution, and cancer. There were also plenty of threats from lawyers who live in the neighborhood who said they might sue the city over the program.
