Help Liberty St. Vendors Get A Citi Bike Rack Moved

bike rack

You may remember a couple of weeks ago when we posted about some of the food carts being forced to move from long time spots on Liberty St. at Broadway. The cause was a large Citi Bike station being installed one weekend, the vendors say without their consultation. Some of them have found new, less visible spots around the corner on Nassau St. & Liberty, but I’m sure sales are down somewhat when you’re not seen by the many tourists that walk down Broadway every day.

The Street Vendor Project at the Urban Justice Center is attempting to help these displaced vendors, after already staging a protest. They’ve made a video that you can check out here, and they are also trying to get the Department of Transportation to move the Citi Bike rack five feet so the carts can return to their spots.

SVP and the vendors are asking that you e-mail Josh Benson, the Department of Transportation’s bike program coordinator at, to request the bike rack be moved.
