In the News: Citi Bike Launch Date

••• “It’s official: Citi Bike will debut on Memorial Day, making the commute to that awkward barbeque your boss is throwing on the tiny ledge of his Tribeca apartment that much easier. For the first week, bike share will only be available for members. On June 2, daily and weekly memberships will be available for $9.95 and $25 respectively.” —Gothamist (the pic is of a bike that was at Church and Leonard today; thanks to Brandon for the heads up)

••• From a Broadsheet article about the bike-share racks: “Plans for another Citi Bike kiosk, which was to be located at the corner of South End Avenue and Albany Street (on the northeast corner, near the World Financial Center parking garage) have been cancelled, because of objections from Brookfield Properties, which owns the World Financial Center.”

••• “Although the South Street Seaport Museum is closed for repairs to the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy, its stalwart historic schooner Pioneer has resumed its public sails, available this weekend (May 11 and 12) and then six days a week, Tuesdays through Sundays, from May 14 to October 20.” —Broadsheet

••• Architect Winka Dubbeldam finally sold her place at 497 Greenwich. —Manhattan Loft Guy

••• “Late original buyer at 415 Greenwich Street flips Tribeca Summit loft for fun and profit.” Wait, he flipped it after he died? —Manhattan Loft Guy
