TLD reader William sent along this photo from Madison Street, just east of Montgomery, where a new Citi Bike station popped up in the last couple of days, replacing another station that was located just a few steps away on Gouverneur Street.  He points out that the docks were placed right in front of a fire hydrant.  “If these were cars, there would be (parking) tickets all over,” he wrote.
