NYPD Blue, on the Sidewalk

Woman Down, NYC
Photo by myself around Sixth Avenue and 28th Street, in Midtown.

The sidewalk resembled the beginning of a Law and Order episode, Thursday afternoon.

A well-dressed woman was lying on the sidewalk. She seemed fine, just disoriented. A policeman stood over her, waiting for assistance.

In general we do hear sirens now and again in the city, but nothing like the mayhem you see on tv, thank goodness. I'm actually surprised we don't have more accidents, given the drivers who don't use turn signals, pedestrians who cross against the lights and bike messengers who ride against the traffic.

Happy Friday, everyone!
