marking your territory

i'm a sucker for any element that fights the homogenization of a neighborhood. so i was especially smitten by these bike racks i saw today. on wall street in new york, appropriately.

That's a David Byrne creation. He designed several that relate to the neighborhood they are in. They look great but I have yet to see a bike rack that looks cool AND maximizes how many bikes can fit on it.
