Citi Bike Reaches Crown Heights!
By: Omar Hernandez
In early April, Citi Bike and the Department of Transportation announced the first draft of where new docking stations will go in Crown Heights, Prospect Heights, and Lefferts Gardens. According to the Draft Plan, some of the station locations will be near Medgar Evers College, Brooklyn Museum, areas around Prospect Park, and the Jackie Robinson Playground.
The first time that I tried Citi Bike was 5 months ago, through my internship with Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation (Restoration) as part of their Better Bike Partnership. Restoration has been leading a partnership to increase membership and ridership among people of color and low to moderate-income communities.
