Bleecker Street is a street in New York City's Manhattan borough. It is perhaps most famous today as a Greenwich Village nightclub district. The street is a spine that connects a neighborhood today popular for music venues and comedy, but which was once a major center for American bohemia.
Bleecker Street connects Abingdon Square, the intersection of Eighth Avenue and Hudson Street in the West Village, to the Bowery in the East Village.
Nearby sites include Washington Square Park and music venue Cafe Wha?, where Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Bruce Springsteen, Kool & the Gang, Bill Cosby, Richard Pryor, and many others began their careers. The club CBGB, which closed in 2006, was located at the east end of Bleecker Street, at the corner of Bowery.

I like this seemingly simple city corner shot, not least because on my very old Fred Neil vinyl LP there is a song called 'Bleecker and MacDougall'. At least I think so. Fred Neil performed in Greenwich Village, sometimes with Bob Dylan in the early 60s.
You did very well here by locating the corner just right of centre in the composition, and capturing the red-clothed cyclist at the crucial moment, making him a strong highlight and focal point. The rest of the scene contains interesting details, such as the pedestrians, the graffiti, the motor-scooter. Excellent sharpness and a good note.
