Photo by myself in Bryant Park, in Midtown.
A riveting game of speed chess was played in the park the other day.
These fellows were playing with just five minutes on each of their clocks - as soon as one player's hand left a piece, his opponent would start making a move.
I would have asked more questions but I didn't want to waste any precious seconds of their time.
