Hi,

A friend emailed me a picture of a person riding down
the middle of a New York City street on a giraffe. The
picture is at

It's a cool shot: anyone know who it is?

Sorry, but his ***doesn't look familiar.

It appears to be a black guy, about 6' tall, on a Schwinn Giraffe. There are
an awful lot of unicyclists in New York City though. One thing that stands
out about this guy is that he doesn't seem to be concerned about riding in
the middle of the street!

Notice how all the New Yorkers rudely stare at him?  :-)

Our first unicycle group ride (9 riders total) was in NY City.  Riverside Park
to Central Park and out.  There are pictures of that ride on www.muniac.com
including one of Jeannie riding down the sidewalk, though not on a giraffe.
People were very nice to us including the cops in CP.  We rode through the
middle of an indoor restaurant on our way to Riverside Park.  People were even
nice there too.  Not every lunch hour includes nine unicyclists.  To see the
pix, go down on the home page and click on PICTURES & INFO under NY ride.
Later.

Note that he is riding against the traffic...

While I'm not a NYer, it appears to be near or at times square, the
street appears to be traffic-blocked for some reason (note the
rollerblader at the intersection), and the police car is parked.
Amazing lack of traffic & people for that area.
