Someone Planted a Bicycle Garden in Queens!

Note: this has since been removed.

I was driving along Vernon Blvd in Queens when I spotted something you don’t usually see under the 59th Street Bridge…

A bicycle garden!

Or, to be specific, a row of flowers made out of old bike parts:

Very inventive stuff – check out this sunflower…

The group responsible for this “Urban Garden” is the Recycle-A-Bicycle program, with help from a grant by the NY DOT. The Recycle-A-Bicycle program seems to have its hand in all sorts of New York programs, from salvaging old bikes to promoting bike use in the city.

Good use of bike sprockets…

  1. What a great find!

    I used to live in Brooklyn near where the BQE connects with Prospect highway and the Brooklyn Battery. For a split second, I thought this was an art space on Columbia street.

    NYC is great for these little hidden art pieces made of dirty NY life.

    Thanks for this!
