Photo by myself at the subway station at 34th Street.
A couple policemen pinned a man down on the ground, Wednesday afternoon. The man's girlfriend stood nearby. The other man, standing, was one of many bystanders.
It was not clear what had happened, just moments before.
New York City is nothing like how it used to be. The parks used to be drug-riddled, the subways fearful. People never parked nice cars on the street, for fear of finding smashed windows and stolen radios.
