Last week, the Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership and New York Police Department’s 88th Precinct joined forces on Vanderbilt Avenue at Myrtle Avenue to register bicycles. NYPD registered 43 bikes during the morning commute. One of Myrtle Avenue’s newest businesses, Myrtle Bagel, generously donated delicious coffee and fresh bagels. By all accounts, the event was successful and the mood festive.
If a registered bike is stolen and then recovered by NYPD, the police can more easily return it to its rightful owner. Registration itself involves filling out a form with bike details and serial number. If the bike doesn’t have a serial number, NYPD Crime Prevention Officers can etch one. If you would like to have your bike registered, simply visit the 88th Precinct at 298 Classon at Dekalb. It’s FREE!
Myrtle Bagel is located at 410 Myrtle Avenue, between Vanderbilt and Clinton Avenues
