In an effort to help rid the streets of the countless abandoned bikes chained to posts across New York City the Transportation Nation organization has started an abandoned bike mapping project, which along with a phone call to 311 (NYC's directory of city services) allows users to upload photos of any bikes they might think are abandoned and have the city sweep them away. With 377 locations already identified, the program seems to be well on it's way to achieving it's goal

Check out their Flickr page to see photos of the abandoned bikes. Email photos to bikes@wnyc.org to have them added to their abandoned bike tracker map
