Workers at Broadway and Whipple in Williamsburg Friday
Citi Bike Friday moved on to installing stations in Bed Stuy, having finished installing new stations in Greenpoint and Williamsurg over the last two weeks. Workers Friday started on a station at Tompkins and Willoughby in Bed Stuy.
Williamsburg also got a new station Friday at Broadway and Whipple, close to the border of Bushwick and Bed Stuy. Citi Bike installed at least five new stations in Bed Stuy over the last few days, according to its own map. New locations are:
- Myrtle Avenue and Marcy Avenue
- Myrtle Avenue and Lewis Avenue
- Park Avenue and Marcus Garvey Boulevard
- Nostrand Avenue and Myrtle Avenue
- Willoughby Avenue and Tompkins Avenue
A look at the map shows 18 more stations are coming soon, from Nostrand to Malcolm X. (Sorry, far east Bed Stuy.) Citi Bike is also putting in a new station at Henry and Poplar Street in Brooklyn Heights this week, a spokeperson told Brownstoner.
These new stations should make it much easier for residents and visitors to get around the sprawling neighborhood that is Bed Stuy and quickly reach close-by areas such as Fort Greene and Williamsburg.
