A view at the entrance to a car wash, on 25th Street, near the West Side Highway.
There are gas stations and car dealerships in Manhattan, too.
By the way, the city has announced a bike share program starting in the summer of 2012.
Apparently people sign up with $100 a year. Bike stations will be located all over the place, where you pick up or drop off your ride.
It's a big debate now about whether this is a good idea or a horrible one. Many New Yorkers are very nervous about how congested the sidewalks are already.
