Bike Racks

Bicycle Built For ‘Shoe’

Here’s a sole-ful take on the common bike rack.

The “high-heeled” unit near Bergdorf Goodman on Fifth Avenue is one of nine arty new racks designed by former Talking Heads frontman David Byrne that are being planted all over town.

The racks will suit their location: One is shaped like a dollar sign for Wall Street, another, in Times Square, is shaped like the bosomy profile of a woman often seen on truckers’ mud flaps, and a third, in the hipster section of Williamsburg, looks like an electric guitar.

“The locations are as perfect as one could imagine,” Byrne said.

They’ll be up for 11 months.
