She learned later on that the crocheted bicycle was a part of an art installation by a Polish artist name Agata Oleksiak. JoyfulGypsy says she has been photographing street art for many years and has an extensive collection. 'I enjoy [street art], it adds color, beauty and tone,' she says.

    I came upon this crochet bicycle with attached baby seat while walking down Delancey Street in New York City in April of 2011.


    In such a busy, crowded city as New York, where people are often in a rush and preoccupied with one hundred different things, it's a nice surprise to come upon something as whimsical and unexpected as this playful work of street art.


    Because it was so unusual, I stopped, took the attached photo and walked away with an unexpected smile.


    * After doing a little research, I found that this crochet bicycle was part of an art installation by Agata Oleksiak.  She is an artist from Poland that goes by the name "Olek."
