He’s been around the dock.
A Manhattan man is the first to visit every Citi Bike station in the Big Apple and Jersey City — all 1,577 of them — often riding until past 4 a.m. to complete the more than five-borough feat.
Why did Eric Finkelstein, 33, apply an “essentially ludicrous amount of effort” to the task?
“I have this thing for completing stuff,” he told The Post.
An avid player of the location-based game Pokémon Go who is admittedly “obsessed” with frequent-flyer programs, Finkelstein once “literally booked an around the world flight to catch some of the regional Pokémon.”
Finkelstein — a former competitive ping pong player who has appeared at international tournaments and trained in China — also holds the Guinness record for longest table tennis serve.
Finkelstein had visited 407 stations in the course of his riding when, in early August, he noticed a new Citi Bike app feature, “City Explorer.” The page displays a map showing where users have and have not rented or returned one of the iconic blue bikes.
Exactly three weeks later, after cycling through more than a few nights, he’d visited a stunning 1,100 additional Citi Bike stations, making him the first rider to hit them all. After making it to the last dock — in Hoboken — he got dinner and met a friend there for a drink to celebrate.
He’s clocked in just over 600 hours in the saddle and completed more than 4,000 rides since he joined the urban bikeshare in 2016, according to Citi Bike app screenshots.
His account actually shows 1,609 stations visited, since some have been deactivated or moved since 2016.
The Nolita resident was struck by how many sidewalk cookouts he biked past in The Bronx and rest of the outer boroughs, he said — as well as the number of open fire hydrants.
“I feel like I don’t see that very often in Manhattan. When I was in the Bronx I saw that constantly. For the car, a minor nuisance, but as a biker, I got soaked,” he said.
A “side benefit” of the ride: getting to check some outer-borough eats off his list, including Puerto Rican-style pork in the Fordham section of the Bronx, at Cuchifritos, which he’d seen on Anthony Bourdain’s “Parts Unknown.”
One thing which surprised the chart-loving healthcare information-technology consultant: he had only one near miss with a vehicle, when a parked car made a sudden U-turn as he passed, forcing him to swerve.
And not a single fellow New Yorker was “openly hostile.”
All that riding around has left him with a few gripes for Citi Bike parent Lyft, including some neighborhoods which perennially have no bikes and others no docks, or when the app shows a single open dock at a station, only for the rider arrive and find it broken. But he says he recognizes “rebalancing” bikes to be a difficult task.
Citi Bike confirmed Finkelstein to be the first rider to visit every station.
“We’ve seen an uptick in the number of stations people are visiting since we’ve launched the City Explorer feature but Eric is the first to get to all of them, an impressive achievement. We’ll be adding hundreds more stations in the near future and we challenge him to keep up his 100% status as we continue to grow our network!” Laura Fox, Citi Bike general manager at Lyft, said in a statement.
