"The Cornerstone of Philadelphia" Bans Bicycles

Building Management at 1500 Walnut Street sent a memo to thethe tenants that bicycles will no longer be allowed in the building. 1500 Walnut was previously a bike friendly building. Management has placed a bike rack in the back of the building, that sounds like a terrible choice to put a bike rack, as it increases the risk of bike theft, although I understand that it is a private walkway and woefully short

15th and Walnut is one the heaviest on street bicycle parking locations in Center City. Besides a letter from the Bicycle Coalition the management at 1500 should expect a whole lot more bikes parked in front of Striped Bass.
