When the Manhattan Bridge Archway first reopened to the public, it took less than a day for drivers to spot the free parking in what was meant to be a pedestrian plaza, and now it seems that years later the cyclists have taken notice. Nearly every day we spot these bikes chained to the archway's fixtures... including one chained to one of the few benches on which pedestrians could be sitting on.

The DUMBO BID tells us, "We too have noticed this happening more and more and are working on signage to inform cyclists that bikes should be locked to racks elsewhere."

Can't we all just respect each other's bike lanes, or sitting lanes, or whatever the lane may be?
