Soon, it might be a little easier to find a parking place in New York City -- for your bike.

Fun City is proposing tough, new bike parking rules.

New apartment buildings would be required to have one secure bike parking space for every two units.

There's a similar proposal for offices.

Officials say more New Yorkers would commute by bike, if they had a convenient spot to lock it up.

But real estate industry officials counter some of that required bike parking might go to waste because of too few riders.
