The Plaza Hotel says racks for Citi Bikes are an eyesore
The Plaza says New York City's block-long bike rack in front of its landmark hotel is an eyesore and wants it removed immediately.
The famous hotel has filed a lawsuit against the city claiming the rack causes traffic jams around the hotel.
The suit says the row of bright blue Citi Bikes has reduced the four-lane drive across from its main entrance to three.
The rack is located across from the Plaza along Grand Army Plaza.
According to the New York Post a lawyer for the Plaza says the city violated its own laws by failing to conduct the required environmental impact review.
Citi Bike didn't respond to a request for comment. The city said it's confident the installation was proper.
