Henry St & Grand St citibike station is gone.

Since citibike has no publishing about such changes and since I already called to find out what had happened to the Henry Street & Grand Street station in the Lower East Side (LES) of Manhattan, I'm writing this blog post.

Apparently and according to the representative that answered my call to 1-855-BIKE-311 (although she initially just confirmed the station was removed, dah - without explanation until I insisted) the station was removed due to a nearby construction which should last up to 6 weeks. Damn, goodbye to a convenient early summer for me (that station was in front of my building).


I also emailed and I was amazed by their hand-wash response:

Where do you publish information on removing stations, the reason and for how long? I'm a member (ID *****) and want to have this information before hand, not just walk to the location and find no station in sight...

It seems these guys really want to beat the MTA in poor service and information standards.
