Photo by myself in Midtown, around 38th Street and Seventh Avenue.
Don't be fooled, not all New Yorkers are impossibly thin or tall.
I noticed several of this breed last week, Fashion Week. My spidey-sense says they were models for the runway shows.
Personally I could never wear such high heels as the woman pictured or the gals on Sex and the City. Many sidewalks are dangerously uneven, making it precarious whether you're in sneakers or stilettos.
Twice this summer I've flopped over onto the sidewalk, while wearing high wedges. Both times I was helped upright by my fellow New Yorkers, who asked whether I was all right. The ego was bruised but everything else was fine.
Watch your step!
