I keep a Dutch-style bike (upright handlebars, enclosed chaincase, etc.) locked up near the High Line. It's there for me when I visit the city, and it saves me the trouble of having to get it on and off an NJ Transit train. The bike has a little rust on it ((this is its third summer as a pemanent NYC fixture) but I hope it doesn't come close to the criteria of being considered derelict.

What's the correct/legal way to dispose of a bike?

It sounds like it's hard to get those bikes removed but this project, pulling in info from the large group of listeners, is really interesting as a "power of social media/ listener audience".

My friend's ghost bike was gone after about one month...its seems like they get taken faster than abandoned bikes...does the city remove them?
