Photo by myself in Battery Park, along the Hudson River.
I'm not sure what was being discussed among the above fellows.
The weather? How many drug busts had taken place that morning? Dead body count? The latest Nicks game?
Good to know that our waters are being patrolled as often as our streets and subways.
Ever wonder what happens to all the merchandise seized by the NYPD?
Rolex watches, cars, jewelry, electronics...you name it, are auctioned off to the public online, at propertyroom.com.
I have to say that getting jewelry or other valuables at this site is better than shopping on ebay, for example. On the Property Room site, you know the goods are real, since they've been verified by authorities.
In case you're wondering, there is photographic equipment up for grabs, too. Lenses, SLRs and digital cameras are available, though many items are untested and are sold 'as is'.
Last but not least, winners get bragging rights that their goods were 'hot'!
