Stolen Bike Comes Home

Oh, and another argument for a bike-share program: Avoiding ordeals like the one Matt O’Rourke faced last year after his custom-made bicycle was stolen on 10th Street and Avenue C. According to Jalopnik, Mr. O’Rourke published a Craigslist post offering a $500 reward for the bike’s return, but didn’t get any responses until 18 months later, when a woman who had read the post recognized the bike on the Williamsburg Bridge and informed its new owner, who had bought it in Tompkins Square Park, that it was stolen.
