Bike Found

Hi neighbors--found a kid's bike in the Hamilton Street Community Garden a couple of weeks ago. So far haven't heard from anyone who sees my Facebook posts, but I think the bike probably belongs to someone who's local ;-) That being said, I'd like to return it rather than give it away. If you think you know about this bike, please reply with some info and a description of the bike. Thanks!!See More
