bah humbug no more! new rochelle bike share, westchester county’s first, not leaving after all!

UPDATE (12.21.2019): Post updated with Mayor Bramson’s response (it’s great news) – see below.

After arriving with much fanfare, I received a shocking update on New Rochelle Bike Share via email yesterday. The update? An article whose title explains it all – Bike Share to Leave New Rochelle.

Since there’s literally nothing about this on the media or Google, I gotta ask – what the hell happened?!

[let’s find out]

Memorial Highway in New Rochelle is an excessively wide road originally designed to connect I-95 to the Cross-County Parkway. However, it only exists as a stub that doesn’t connect to much of anything. Recently, Governor Cuomo awarded New Rochelle a $10 million grant; of this amount, New Rochelle will spend $6 million on The Linc – a project transforming Memorial Highway from a useless car sewer to a useful linear park! Last week, I took many photos of the area. Let’s take a trip, shall we?
