AND THE WINNER IS...
Another way to move around Manhattan – PEDICAB!!!!
There are more than 800 of them registered in New York. It all started with several bikes in the East Village in 1995. Surprisingly, only 5 months ago, at the end of November 2009, the city came up with citywide Pedicab regulations!
I never tried riding in one. They seem to be popular with New York visitors: it must be a fun way to experience the city if you are not too much into walking.
If you are curious about how practical it is, here is video of the race between a taxi and a Pedicab around Manhattan – ha! Who knew?;)
This picture is taken on Fifth Avenue between 53rd and 54th streets. The traffic is intense there in the middle of the day. I wonder if the bikers still have fun when it is so busy.
