Williamsburg gets first Bike-In movie

Williamsburg will have the city's first bike-in movie next week -- and Citi Bike has installed 15 new stations in the neighborhood over the past two days, the company said.

The bike-in film will be shown on Tuesday in the Brooklyn Flea Space on Kent Street, between North 11th and North 12th streets. Nonprofit Bike New York will give a 90-minute class on biking in the city, then Citi Bike will show "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial," chosen because of its iconic scene of E.T. biking across the moon.

There were seven stations installed on Monday -- including near McCarren Park on North 12th Street and Bedford Avenue, as well as on Leonard and Bayard streets. Another new station is on Berry and North Eighth streets.

Citi Bike was to install eight more stations yesterday, including on Kent Avenue and North Seventh Street, and Union Avenue and Jackson Street.

Thirty-three new stations will come to Williamsburg as part of Citi Bike's second phase of expansion. There were only nine before, as far north as Metropolitan Avenue. They went as far east as Havemeyer Street.

Other nearby neighborhoods getting the blue bikes include Long Island City and Greenpoint.
