I'm not sure what the most shocking thing is that I've seen on the streets.
A man wrapped in a carpet, like a log? A stranger checking whether a homeless man on the sidewalk is still breathing?
A big guy exposing himself in a subway station (pants down, at the 23rd Street N/R station)? A dead guy on a train (72nd and Broadway, one weekend)? A guy stealing a bike in broad daylight?
A pedestrian hit by a car (42nd and 8th Avenue), a cyclist hit by a car (59th Street and Columbus Avenue). I am frankly surprised that there aren't more accidents, though I saw four within a two week period.
A woman whose foot was run over by someone in desperate need of a parking space (78th and Amsterdam). The car window being broken a second later by her furious husband.
A guy shaving his face with a battery operated shaver.
A woman brushing her teeth out on the sidewalk.
This kind of stuff happens every day.
