Photo by myself at Madison and 43rd Street, in Midtown.
I would like to think these police officers were accompanying me on my ride uptown, but no.
The NYPD sometimes use motorcycles for highway patrol and fancy motorcades. With the stop and go traffic that we have, they probably become frustrated very, very quickly.
I took this photo from the back of a cab a little while ago on a sunnier day. It's been mostly grey and icky outside recently and super busy at the office.
