wanna rack

The Opening Planning Project has a website up, FixCity:Bike Racks, to take in your request for a NYC bike rack...

FixCity:Bike Racks, is a social mapping application designed to "crowdsource" community and government collaboration in the gathering, planning, and implementing new bike racks.

This application encourages residents and community organizations to suggest new bike racks, verify suggested locations, gather statements of support from the broader community, and finally submit a "shovel-ready" bulk order to the Department of Transportation.

FixCity includes a tips/tools to place your request (where the DOT will and won't install racks) and a map tracking requests that have been placed.

You can even
Tweet your spot - if you so please!
