NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A Citi Bike rack near the Plaza Hotel will be staying right where it is.
A judge on Monday tossed out a lawsuit calling for the removal of the station. In the suit filed last October, the hotel claimed the racks were “an eyesore” and “unnecessary when there are other alternatives.”READ MORE: Long Island Woman Sentenced To 9 Months In Prison For Death Of Anti-Gang Activist Evelyn Rodriguez
The suit also claimed that bike parking has taken away a lane of traffic, leading to congestion of limousines in front of the hotel.
Plaza officials claimed the city reneged on a promise to relocate the bikes, which is why they are moving forward with the suit.READ MORE: Woman In Viral Series Of TikTok Videos Finds Secret Room In New York City Apartment
The rack is not directly in front of the hotel, but rather at the edge of Grand Army Plaza across the street. The rack measures almost 150 feet.
