    Huh. Guess women weren’t out and about in NYC them days. Not a one in that photo. Weird. Well, there is the mother-cat, I suppose.

    Make way for kittens!

  9. It probably happened in Menhattan. Also, looks like short guys on the left and tall guys on the right.

    I enjoy looking at the facial expressions of all the onlookers (the majority smiling; the rest with dropped jaws. The guy on the left who looks like he has just made a bet!). Also the fact that the only clearly visible store sign says “Repairing”, how interesting!
