Another great video by Casey Neistat

Now this kind of thing happens everyday in NYC. An altercation, generally leading to a fist fight, between two people on the mean overcrowded streets where respect for fellow citizens seems to be overshadowed by everyone’s…sense of being in a hurry. However, what’s not so common place is capturing it on video, and even [...]

Bicycling Times Magazine and Randonneuring

Here are a couple of things I just discovered. My co-worker and cycling enthusiast Dave Anderson and I were conversing on the Ed Koch bridge heading to one of the film stages in Brooklyn.
