Memorial to Those Killed in Bike and Other Car Related Accidents

The first time I saw a ghostly, painted, white bike was on Houston and Essex. It was festooned with photos, personal notes and plastic flowers, a memorial to a twenty-something woman who had been killed on that corner while riding home on her bike.

That was several years ago and over the years I've come across several more. This one is at Second Avenue and 9th street in front of St Marks Church on the Bowery, it's the first one that describes the project in detail. I am not sure who it is that is doing it, but I find them very moving.

If you ride a bicycle remember to always wear a helmet.
