Bike Sharing Workshop

Thursday, March 1, 2012
Happy March, everyone!

We've been following news about the city's bike share program closely because, frankly, we think it will be good for Park Slope's Fifth Avenue (if we get some stations) and, with spring right around the corner, we're ready to give the bikes a spin.

Anyway, if you are interested in the program, there will be a Community Planning Workshop on Thursday, March 15th, 2012, 6:30 PM–8:30 PM
