GREENPOINT - A Greenpoint store owner is concerned the addition of bike lanes in front of his property may put him out of business.

Steve Rosenburg says when the Department of Transportation put in the lanes last November on Franklin Street, they did away with parking spaces that customers used.

"Just like putting all your money in a home and somebody comes along and takes it away from you ? this is going to put me out on the street," Rosenburg says.

The DOT says it is working on the situation and is trying to address Rosenburg's concerns.
