If you thought the loss of subway service and Subway sandwich service was the extent of the nightmare in Williamsburg, think again: not only will the Bedford and Lorimer stops be without late-night and weekend L train service until May 18, but this Thursday, the problem will be compounded by Citi Bike repairs.
We never thought we’d see Billy Rohan on a Citi Bike. You’re more likely to catch him skateboarding in Iraq or backflipping off a cop car.
But the other day he shot us an idea: “I thought it would be a funny skit to take these silly bikes to famous skate spots and get our friends to ride them on stairs and skate parks.”
They don’t roll on Shabbos, or anytime else. But among the Hasidim of South Williamsburg, a grassroots organization is pushing for more bike-share stations.
Hasidim For Bikes, founded late last month, is committed to uniting those members of the Hasidic community who are psyched for bikes — and bummed about a perceived dearth of bike stations south of Broadway.
