To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the New York Freedom of Information Law, I hereby request the following records:
Please provide any and all documents or photographs of Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (Port Authority) managed bike racks in or around all Port Authority properties. This includes, but is not limited to, all Port Authority Trans-Hudson (PATH) stations, the Port Authority Bus Terminal, One World Trade Center, Newark Liberty International Airport, John F. Kennedy International Airport, La Guardia International Airport, and any other owned property not mentioned here. If these bike racks are documented by the Port Authority but not managed by the Port Authority (eg a local business or municipality provided it), please provide these as well.
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.
Please see attached.
4 World Trade Center
150 Greenwich Street, New York, NY 10007
NOTICE: THIS E-MAIL AND ANY ATTACHMENTS CONTAIN INFORMATION FROM THE PORT AUTHORITY OF NEW YORK AND NEW JERSEY AND AFFILIATES. IF YOU BELIEVE YOU HAVE RECEIVED THIS E-MAIL IN ERROR, PLEASE NOTIFY THE SENDER IMMEDIATELY, PERMANENTLY DELETE THIS E-MAIL (ALONG WITH ANY ATTACHMENTS), AND DESTROY ANY PRINTOUTS.
I do not believe that this qualifies as an "overly broad" request as many bike racks have previously been publicly reported in local newspapers. For example the main bike rack at Journal Square was reported on in the context of bike theft. http://www.nj.com/hudson/index.ssf/2012/08/bike_thefts_at_journal_square.html
Can you clarify that these bike racks are managed by PANYNJ, and if so are there documents of where they are installed and how many bikes can be left on these racks?
