How's (bike) parking down there? I notice it's on the 4th floor.

Thanks.

Lots of racks, just east of the storefront (in front of Mother Hubbard's).  The racks accommodate at least 14 bikes.

You can also lock to some of the lights and posts on the block if things are really busy (and you have a lock that will fit around said items).

If you want to "decorate" your bike, you'll need to bring it up on the elevator, which is just right of the stairs.  You roll onto the elevator, then roll off on the opposite side, so don't try to back your bike into it.
