Citi Bike Racks Block EMS at Greenwich Village Co-Op

Citi Bike Racks Block EMS at Greenwich Village Co-Op

Once again New York City's bike sharing program is coming under fire. The Citi Bike program hasn't even officially begun and it's already facing a lawsuit from a Greenwich Village co-op board, according to the New York Post.

A number of bike rack stations have been installed throughout the city in preparation for the Memorial Day opening of the city's bike sharing program. The Post is reporting that a bike rack outside 175 W. 13th St. gave emergency responders difficulty getting to a sick man on the 20th floor of The Cambridge.

EMS reportedly had to park three doors down because the bike station, which runs the length of the co-op building, was blocking their access to the sidewalk. Luckily, the 92-year-old man survived and was recovering at Beth Israel.
