The Lark Street BID, the Aurora Foundation of NorthEast, Inc., and the Mayor’s Office of Energy &Sustainability are pleased to announce the placement of 32 bike racks along the Lark Street BID corridor from Washington Ave to the Price Chopper on Delaware Ave. To celebrate the placement of the bike racks and the designation of the Lark Street as Albany’s first Green Byway, a ribbon cutting & kick off event will be held this Saturday, October 16 from 1-3pm at Café Hollywood, 275 Lark Street.

Representatives from the Albany Police Department will be on hand to register bikes for all attendees.Additionally, minor repairs and tune ups will be made courtesy of Lark Street business, The Downtube. The event is being held at Café Hollywood which has taken on the challenge of becoming a “green” bar. Their dedication to being a more sustainable business includes such initiatives as using products that will reduce waste and aid in recycling and provide healthy minded food options.

These are just a few of the steps that the City of Albany and the Lark Street BID are taking to make Lark Street a more sustainable neighborhood and to encourage other Albany businesses and residents to become more environmentally aware.
