Anna Shoup emailed City Paper with news that Alice Swanson’s aunt was at the intersection of Connecticut and R streets NW today, where she replaced her niece’s memorial ghost bike (which the Department of Public Works removed on Friday) with flowers and a hand-written sign that reads, “Why has the mayor taken the bike?”
