Map This Location


The bike rack on Harvard Place at Westcott Street was installed in 2012 and is a project organized by 40 Below’s Public Arts Task Force and designed by city artist/architect Brendan Rose (of Armory Sq/Creek Walk dragon fame), and local deisgner Damian Vallelonga. The simple colorful design combines strong pipe poles and cut metal sheets.  The placement was clearly tested by a biker – since there is plenty of room for every type of bike, and most kinds of locks.  Look carefully, the cut-outs spell “Westcott”.
