Update December 5, 2013- Pick-A-Bagel is still being allowed to store unused junk bikes in plain view of well-kept Blue Smoke and Brookfield Place . Note the bent wheel. Owner Alan Philips is to blame.
Update April 26, 2013- On the other side of the building, by Shake Shack, is another bike junkyard caused by deliverymen storing their unused bikes, while off-duty. At any given time, there are only a few deliverymen, but there are 20 bikes constantly chained illegally taking away space for tourists, and creating an eyesore.
Update April 21, 2013- The bike junkyard is back in full force.
March 10, 2013- Someone “got the memo” and made Pick-A-Bagel organize their pile of junk bikes a bit better, but it is still unacceptable. At any one time, only a handful of deliverymen are working. Extra bikes should not be stored in the public spaces, taking away from tourists or locals who need to use the bike racks.

This is an unfortunate site right in front of Goldman Sachs alley. The bikes should not be chained to the trees, and there certainly should not be spare parts such as wheels laying about. Pick-A-Bagel is owned by Alan Phillips.
The other Pick-A-Bagel on South End Avenue has the same problem.
