"The Ladies' Mile" bike rack designed by David Byrne. New York, NY 2008.

5th Avenue between 57th and 58th Streets, in front of Bergdorf Goodman.


David Byrne designed nine bike racks that are iconic representations (in his view) of the New York City neighborhood each is installed in. I've decided to chalk the racks that have good shadows. See his website for more on his bike rack project.


Thanks for linking to my photos David. Check out David's new book about cycling through cities all over the world: Bicycle Diaries


Also check out the video tour of the bike rack project by Arkyard. They must have made this in the last week of August 2008 because my outlines of The Wall Street and The Villager appear in their film.
