Photo by myself at Broadway and Canal Street, near Chinatown.
A photo from a warmer time.
Canal Street is a street busy with car and pedestrian traffic. The on ramp to the Manhattan Bridge is on the eastern end of this street, and the sidewalks are lined with vendors selling perfume, jewelry and clothing.
This guy named Billy Eichner runs around Manhattan, quizzing people on the street for small prizes.
I mean, he literally runs around on the street. And there is nothing more frightening in New York than a big guy running at you (waving a microphone, yelling random questions about celebrities), so a good part of the show involves strangers running away from Billy in sheer terror. Ha.
