The city has been busy installing the first set of Citi Bike Stations, much to the chagrin of some locals. One such local is Jacques Capsouto, the 68-year-old owner of a Tribeca bistro. Capsouto's bistro has been closed since Hurricane Sandy, but yesterday he held a one-man protest to stop workers from installing racks that were taking away parking spaces in front of his restaurant. Capsouto sat on the ground, blocking their way. He was nearly arrested, but NYPD convinced him that it was "just not worth getting arrested for." [NYP; previously]
