I hadn't seen that...To me that just doesn't make sense...I think it had more to do with the Architect who designed it, like the look of the racks that way. Again, you lose an extra point or points...

Correct (on the photo locking up the bikes perpendicular to the "U" rack), except as you can see in the picture, it makes no sense because the bikes now take up more space on the side walk....Also,...

NYC Bike Racks Installed Wrong

I noticed something the other day. That all of the new city installed bike racks are oriented in-correctly. These bike racks are typically an upside down "U" shape, so one bike could be locked up on...
