Learn About the History of Puerto Rico Before Visiting
Introduction to the History of Puerto Rico is the gathering of information about an American Story – both interesting and inspirational to people that want to support this wonderful interlaced community!
In 1898, following the Spanish–American War, the United States acquired Puerto Rico under the terms of the Treaty of Paris. The treaty took effect on April 11, 1899.
Many local people I’ve met have expressed mixed-feelings about the status of Puerto Rico as US Territory or a potential US State. – Mark

Dave Weiner & Priority Bicycles
I briefly met Dave Weiner as a competitor in 2016, at the meeting at The Citadel in Central Park to publicly review the Central Park Bike Rental Concession (RFP).
Dave and I stayed connected on LinkedIn, and once again spoke in 2017. I had called Dave for a quote when writing the business plan and proposal for a real-estate and management company that was considering sponsoring a bike share program in Connecticut. The plan featured Priority Bicycles and accessories, and the implementation of a cutting-edge Dockless Bike Share technology from Donkey Republic – based in Copenhagen.
Today we met 1-1 and in-person for the first time at the showroom located at 175 Hudson in New York City. I was very impressed with the big windows and large open minimalist space, it was more like a Soho Art Gallery than what I expect from a bicycle showroom. The difference was that the variety of Priority Bicycles were the art pieces displayed. A central kitchen and bar are near the entrance and there were no visible desks or cubicles.
Talking Bikes with Dave Weiner
Dave and I “talked bikes” as I am considering Priority Bicycles and the primary supplier for the beach bike rental fleet I need to acquire for service in Juan, Puerto Rico – launching in 2019.
