Because there, new apartment and condo buildings are not only incorporating bike storage rooms, but they’re tricked out with repair tables, tire pumps, their own entrances or elevators, cushioned hooks for helmets, and sometimes, ginormous windows that rival the views of the apartments themselves and full-time bike valets on call.
So what gives? A recent survey found that up to 20 percent of city residents bike several times a month.

And the bike rooms and amenities are crazy-popular, with long waitlists in some parts of town.
