Greenpoint and Williamsburg will see 53 new Citi Bike stations by the end of 2015, according to a report by the Brooklyn Paper. The paper, which first obtained the DOT’s expansion recommendations via Community Board 1, notes:
The planned stations span the area from Flushing and Marcy avenues at the border of Bushwick and Bedford-Stuyvesant to Franklin Avenue and Dupont Street in Greenpoint, a block from the mouth of Newtown Creek, according to a map provided to the area’s Community Board 1. Notable station sites include one in McCarren Park where Union Avenue is set to be converted to green space, one on either end of McGolrick Park, and one beside the India Street pier.
“This map reflects DOT’s recommended station locations for Citi Bike’s expansion Williamsburg and Greenpoint this year,” said Dani Simons, a spokesperson for Citi Bike. “The map is based on feedback received via dozens of community meetings in these neighborhoods.”
Citi Bike recently began the second phase of its $30 million expansion, which will bring the city 6,000 more bikes by 2017.
