Keeping with the two-wheeled theme, Steve Melnick writes:

I just noticed 4 sites along the sidewalks of Continental Av that have been designated for bike racks. DOT confirms that they should be installed shortly. The locations are marked with 2 orange spots.

Check out the sidewalks outside of Rite Aid, Starbucks, Duane Reade, and Radio Shack. Rack are only installed on sidewalks wider than 12 feet.

I counted 17 bikes chained to trees, poles and tree guards earlier this week.
Our efforts in sending in the NYC City Racks request forms paid off. Thanks to all who participated!

After I read this I walked down there are there are indeed big orange paint dots along Continental Ave from the subway to the LIRR.
