Bikeshare coming to W 45th St.

We just got word from Chekpeds that the initial NYC DOT bikeshare plans show two bike stations on 45th St--a 35 dock station just across 9th Ave in front of Southern Hospitality, and a 51 dock station on our block, on the north side of the street in front of 305 W 45th St. It looks like both stations will be located in the street, not on the sidewalk. This is exciting news--more bikes and fewer cars would be great for our city and for 45th St. This is a pilot program--hopefully the bikes get used--and there will be opportunity for feedback if the bikeshare stations create any unforeseen problems. So what do you think? (you can comment below)

Here's a link to the NYC DOT bikeshare program website:

attached is a map showing the proposed locations:
