The ghost bike for Liz Byrne
For the next few days, I’ll be posting photographs from the 7th Annual Ghost Bikes Memorial Walk and Ride. I participated in the walk, so the photos will be primarily of that portion of the event. This first set is of the ghost bike for Liz Byrne. It is located on the corner of McGuinness Boulevard and Kent Street in Greenpoint, Brooklyn:
Liz Byrne, age 44, was killed while bicycling on the busy street on Friday, September 23, 2005. Her sister, Annie Byrne, requested that a ghost bike be installed in her honor. You can read more about this particular memorial on the ghost bikes website.
