Hundreds of frustrated West Village residents last night spewed their anger over the city’s controversial bike-share program at a community-board meeting.
“We’re second-class citizens in our own city,” said Sean Sweeney, a member of West Village’s Community Board 2, which hosted the meeting at PS 41, and the SoHo Alliance. “They don’t care about the residents.”
He claimed that many of the bike racks now flooding SoHo are obstructing public art spaces and galleries:
“What kind of Philistine — what sort of iconoclast would destroy a public-art space to put up advertising for Citibank?”
