    NYC: Safe lockup spot near New School (13th and 5th)?

    Hey, does anyone know a good spot to lock up around New School University (really anywhere between University and 6th along 13th street or so)? I haven't encountered anything much better than the usual street sign and lightpost fare, which sort of shocks me given how many NSU kids I see on bikes and given the fact that bikes are a no-go in New School buildings. I'd love to find something at least away from parking cars, if not something with some measure of security. Anyone have any hot tips? I'd love to commute by bike while the weather holds, but I'm loathe to leave my bike chained to a lightpost that cars probably back into a dozen times daily for nine hours at a time. Thanks in advance for any ideas.

    No ideas, sorry. But I'd nervous about locking-up around there. Have you seen that video online where these two brothers go around stealing their own bikes? The first place they try is Union Square in broad daylight. They get away with it, too.

    Good luck.
