Luke Ohlson of Brooklyn, NY has posted this video that contrasts the activity at a Citibike bike-share station with the motor vehicle storage area across the street.
It really does pointedly ask the question:  “Which is the better use of the city’s space?”
Note the replenishment of bikes that happens at around the 8 second mark of this time-lapse video, and again at the 18 second mark. Also note the inoperative bike, identifiable by its seat turned backwards. And the vast number of people travelling on foot.
A higher-res Vimeo precursor of this is dubbed “Flatiron”, and the cross street appears to be E 22nd Street.
