Sometimes you just never know what you might come across in New York City? On this day I was heading West on 47th St and was crossing 7th Ave when I saw this guy across the street just standing around… Did I say hmm? This could be a good shot to take. The tourist was also actively taking snapshots.
I needed to be fairly quick to get this shot because nothing usually stays put for long in NYC. Really, it seemed like he was just standing there for people to take pictures of him? I wanted to ask what he was doing, but my time was limited. The bike is called a Penny-farthing and was the first to be called bicycles. It just happens to be coincident there is a restaurant in the East Village called The Penny Farthing NYC.
