Pedicab Operator Taxi Cab Brawl
Having lived in New York for a decade, I am very familiar with the constant rage underneath the surface. I can't believe I never really saw a cabbie fight break out like this — or never started one myself. Fortunately, this looks like a pretty fair fight, and no one gets really hurt, even though it's in the middle of a Midtown intersection. Ironically, it is in front of the Late Show marquee. Is David Letterman's drama affecting the emotions of New Yorkers? I think my favorite part is the reluctant bystander in a suit who realizes that if camera crews are taping this, no one is going to stop it, so he leans over the hairy-backed guy wrestling, saying "Gentlemen Gentlemen!" That guy must work in a junior high school.
