50th District Assemblyman Joseph R. Lentol was at the grand opening/press day of the Havemeyer Park Bike Park in Williamsburg Brooklyn. After the press conference he picked up my bike to a few pictures. He was loving the my 2013 Skyway T/A, I got a few pictures with him and me with the bike too. He was real cool and also did a quick interview about Havemeyer Park with me too. Video coming soon!
