Empire State Building Opens Bike Storage Room for Tenants
The bike buzz that New York City, a Bicycle Friendly Community, has created with the Bicycle Access to Office Buildings Law and the creation of new bike lanes all around the city has spilled over to the business community. The Empire State Building, one of the world’s and NYC’s most famous buildings, announced today the completion of its dedicated bicycle storage room for its tenants. NYC has been active in sustainable living practices and bicycle-initiatives lately. The new facility supports Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s initiative to encourage more New Yorkers to bike to work — part of the city’s PlaNYC strategy.
