Is it a public art project or a transportation thing? Eh, it's probably both. These are new bike racks designed by David Byrne that have been placed around the city and given cute names. The one near the Lincoln Tunnel, for instance, is "The Jersey." The Wall Street is a dollar sign. And, of course, the Williamsburg one is "The Hipster." Don't blame us. Take it up with Mr. Byrne and the Department of Transportation.
