Maxwell Place hates bikes?

WTF File: Maxwell Place hates bikes on their property

Maxwell Place Hates Bikes cuts locks from visitors to local businessesDespite having “street level retail” open to the public, Maxwell Place apparently does NOT want anyone but residents to park bicycles on their property! And I thought this town was filled with “forward thinking” people… the hits keep coming!

Here’s what Christina had to say about her unfortunate incident from the other day:

“The other day I rode my bike to Maxwell Place to go to Local Barre Core Fitness for an hour. When I came out my bike was gone, it was locked around a tree in the front. I went into the concierge front desk and asked if anyone saw someone steal a bike outside. It was an expensive bike and I was really upset. I found out that the management office cut my bike lock because no bikes can be parked anywhere on Maxwell Place property. I was given back my bike with a business card to the management office. I called the next morning to find out that the condo board members voted “no bikes can be parked on any part of the property.” Since when? How come there aren’t any signs?”

411 Take: Boy if Maxwell Place is so “selective” with who can park bikes on their exclusive property – then how come they haven’t banned non-residents from using the shops there? You make the lowly “visitors” park by Kings or Starbucks and have to (God-forbid) walk an extra block or two?

And who are these condo-owners on the board anyway? I guess when you drive around in $150k Benzes just to pick up your dry-cleaning – I suppose you might be apt to look down on those “peasant” modes of transport as “cheapening” your superficial superior existence.

Actually, Federal and state laws require minimum passage on sidewalks. It is the town of Hoboken that regularly violates Rights of Passage laws that indirectly leads residents to believe they can park and ride bicycles where ever they like.

I have no sympathy for cyclists that fl ypark their bikes. It can cause damage to trees. Just google flyparking. If chain your bike to anything but your own property or bike rack, you get what you deserve.

She fly parked the bike to a tree,that would be a $1000 fee in NYC. Bikes should be in racks, if noti don’t blame any property owner for cutting the lock.

Hoboken should be using their PU people to ticket these illegally parked bikes.

A nice idea, but how would they know the difference between a property owner chaining their bike to their own gate and someone chaining to a strangers gate. Some college towns have student monitors who volunteer to tag bikes with warning that are then act upon if the bike is not moved.

Or if you could call in a trespassing bike to have it removed and impounded.

if ANY bike hangs in the sidewalk it is a violation of public right of way passage.[quote comment=”223465″]A nice idea, but how would they know the difference between a property owner chaining their bike to their own gate and someone chaining to a strangers gate.
