The Early Word: Bike Parking Plan For Barclays Axed

Much-touted indoor space doesn't make the cut at 19,000-seat arena.

1. In a project billed as one of the most transit-accessible in the U.S., one alternative transportation feature seems not have made the grade. According to Streetsblog.org, Barclays Center will not include a once-planned indoor 400-capacity bike parking facility, instead opting for outdoor racks on the arena block for the "foreseeable future." Though, if it's any consolation, car drivers aren't doing that much better: a planned vehicular parking lot adjacent to the arena was due to concerns about hydraulic lifts last week. 

2. Co-hosted by Urban Word, is a monthly open mic series for teen poets, spoken word artists, emcees, scholars and activists to share their powerful and important voices. Central Library, 10 Grand Army Plaza. 5 p.m. Free.

3. Come by and feel like part of the family at this teaching traditional, yet accessible, techniques. , 372 Clinton Ave. 6:45 p.m. Donation based.

4. T, an early jazz, swing, and blues band, composed of acoustic guitar/vocals, upright bass, homemade washboard percussion, trumpet and saxophone, plays its repertoire of witty songs from 1920s and 30s. , 211 Dekalb Ave. 8 p.m. Free.

5. Alternate side parking rules are in effect.
