Christmas Eve is upon us. Let’s take a moment to admire Frank’s Bike Shop and its awesome holiday window display. Forget hoofing it to midtown, this shit is certainly worthy.
Behind those huge windows of the Grand Street bike outpost resides a serene holiday scene – an O-gauge train set surrounded by various model houses and a collection of Disney stuffed animals. Owner Frank Arroyo has been creating these unique displays for more than twenty of the last thirty years he’s been in business.
On another note, Frank’s Bike Shop was last in the news during the Citi Bike rollout in May. At that time, the city decided to place a corral within stone’s throw of his store (Grand and Henry). Local public outcry apparently resulted in removal, but the racks were reinstated months later.
