Photo by myself around 8th Street and Broadway, in the Village.
Some folks live on the edge.
Skateboarders and cyclists sharing the city streets with cabs, cars and buses. This fellow crossed busy Broadway this weekend, without a care.
As someone who rides around in a car or cab regularly in the city, I find skateboarding to be very dangerous. Even crossing at the middle of a street is dangerous, because drivers might not see you.
There are a lot of distractions for drivers. It's a wonder there aren't more accidents!
