The weeknight valet service, which will launch at a dock on Avenue A and 7th Street on Monday, will be manned with at least two employees who will remove bikes once the dock fills up so that a couple of spaces will be always be available from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Interesting choice of stations for this experiment. We’ve not recorded a single instance of 7th St & Avenue A filling up during the second quarter.
And generally speaking, our observation is that filled stations are not a problem in the neighborhood. But empty stations put Tompkins Square near the top of our 10 worst neighborhoods list week after week.
