Pedal Pusher


Reader Bill Marden writes in to say that the Pedal Pusher Bike Shop on Second Avenue between 68th & 69th has closed.

He says:

"Store had been in current location for nearly 50 years. Suddenly closed in early March 2018. A nearby dry cleaner told me that the bike shop closed due to a recent rent increase (big surprise). Besides selling bikes, the store was well known for its bike rentals to groups and its repair services. They'll be missed."

The clothing shop next door is sitting empty, too. More high-rent blight.
