First up: New Yorkers are walkers by nature… it’s just that kind of place. Here’s a video which illustrates a wildly different perspective on traveling the streets of New York. It makes one wonder what the average life-expectancy of a NYC bike messenger is?  Do they have good health insurance (in case they get squished between two buses)?  How many pedestrians did they narrowly avoid mowing down in a crosswalk?  Watch it here.

As an aside: the 8th annual Open House New York takes place on the 2nd weekend in October this year.  The brochure explains all the 350 attractions on this years’ list (mostly free admission).
