Plaza Hotel Sues Over Citi Bike Rack

Plaza Hotel Sues Over Citi Bike Rack
The Plaza Hotel says racks for Citi Bikes are an eyesore

The Plaza says New York City's block-long bike rack in front of its landmark hotel is an eyesore and wants it removed immediately.

The famous hotel has filed a lawsuit against the city claiming the rack causes traffic jams around the hotel.

The suit says the row of bright blue Citi Bikes has reduced the four-lane drive across from its main entrance to three.

The rack is located across from the Plaza along Grand Army Plaza.

According to the New York Post a lawyer for the Plaza says the city violated its own laws by failing to conduct the required environmental impact review.

Citi Bike didn't respond to a request for comment. The city said it's confident the installation was proper.
