When the bike-share program started, I got an email from friends who were like, "what the fuck is this thing? And how is it of any use to me?" Truth is, so far most New Yorkers are done no help by the new program: unless you're commuting within Manhattan, or from there to Downtown Brooklyn or something, how would you use it? You could almost accuse bike share of being geared toward tourists. But I could think of lots of times I wish there were a bike-share station around—ways that it would make sense in my life as a person who lives in and travels around Brooklyn quite a bit. Here are some ideas.
