Motorcycle / Bike Racks



"Recycling"  the Yard's Rail Road Track. 

The Brooklyn Navy Yard Bike Racks were installed in 2008 at the Perry Street Building. This is a newly constructed "Green Building". The Steel Track that runs throughout the Yard is a symbol of Strength and Motion. At one time 30 miles of track ran thru the Yard. With new construction it is being replaced by concrete. The design of the Bike Racks was inspired by the technique used to fasten 20- foot rails when they were underground. I chose to combine the worn curved edges and original patina of the track, with new-galvanized steel. The Rails have been transformed into a functional and artistic statement that will become part of the future.
