On her way into the office this morning, Streetsblog development manager Christa Orth spotted some fluorescent safety vests as she pedaled up Brooklyn’s Fifth Avenue. A DOT crew was out in front of local coffee shop Gorilla Coffee, which had agreed to maintain a new bike corral in front of their store. One parking space is being replaced with room for about eight bikes — or as Gorilla might call them, seven new customers.

New York’s first bike corral [2] was installed last summer. Now it looks like the treatment is really starting to [3] spread [4].

Here’s a look at the finished bike corral, courtesy of Gorilla [5]:
