Times to Bike Share Critics: You're Stupid!

Brooklyn Whole Foods
Citibank is the chief corporate sponsor of the bike program, and that fact is hardly obscured on the kiosks and bikes they have paid for. Some in Brooklyn have argued that corporate branding does not belong on landmark blocks... It is hard not to feel as though that strain of dispute might have been squelched if the bikes had been brought to us by Whole Foods, rather than an organization whose subprime mortgage dealings helped bring about the financial crisis.

Take that, Brooklyn bourgeoisie! Though maybe Fairway would have been a better Brooklyn joke? We still don't have a Whole Foods yet...
