BROOKLYN - New bike corrals are popping up around the borough, drawing mixed reaction from residents in Crown Heights.

The corrals are a place where riders can chain their bikes in the street instead of on the sidewalk, but some want to hit the brakes on the initiative in their neighborhoods.

On Franklin Avenue, drivers complain that the corral takes up one or two parking spots, which they say are already hard to come by. Supporters argue the corrals are bringing more visitors.

There are currently five completed bike corrals in Brooklyn, including the one in Crown Heights. Each community board gets the final decision on whether or not to keep them in the area.
