NYC Displays David Byrne-Designed Bicycle Racks
And now nine of his two-wheeled, transport-inspired designs, in the form of art installation bike racks placed in different neighbourhoods around New York City.
In typically cheeky form, Byrne's pedalled the extra mile and created each rack to reflect a different neighbourhood.
The Williamsburg "Hipster" is just too perfect -- and I assume that the only bikes parked there will be Billyburg hipster fixies?
Musician, artist and bicycling enthusiast David Byrne has designed nine unusual bike racks that have been installed around New York City.
The Department of Transportation says the artistic installations by the Talking Heads singer are meant to spark interest in bicycling.
Each rack reflects its location. A guitar-shaped rack named Hipster has been placed in Brooklyn's trendy Williamsburg neighborhood. A rack that looks like a dollar sign is in the Wall Street area.
