This map is the nightlife of NYC through the eyes of Citi Bike.  The champions? Williamsburg and the Lower East Side.  Other late night hot-spots include Alphabet City, the West Village, the Meatpacking District, and Cobble Hill.

Here are the top 10 stations:

If you are one of those riders, be careful out there!
