Is new normal Rockwell Bike share?

Alternative bike share sighted today at 66 Rockwell, a new high rise at the corner of Rockwell Avenue, and Fulton Avenue in Fort Greene, Brooklyn.

According to the upright sign, to become a member, one either needs to download the free Zagster app, or visit their website. Looks pretty cool, the first 4 hours are free (Citibike could take note), but not sure why the phone number is a 202 area code for a service based in NYC?

While some might view this as another sign of Brooklyn gentrification, at least this seems like a step ahead for city cycling, while only a few short years ago, a bicycle parked in front of a luxury high rise was the scourge of the neighborhood. Let’s see how long those bicycles last?
