Celebrity sighted on a folder

Via GLiving :

Chloe Sevigny biking about town on an older folding bike. I'm sure someone in here can place it.... I want to say Raleigh, but the frame-hinge looks wrong for that. Bike looks fairly nice, and it's nice to see someone well-known on a folder.

Nice pic, bookishboy. Where was it snapped?

I like the idea of capturing more celebs on folders - hopefully, it raises the profile of our little gems. Maybe others will contribute to what you've started.

Judging by the license plate on the minivan, it looks like the photo was in New York.

Agreed. She looks like a practical lady, with a decent sized basket on the pannier.

"Chop" has a couple of celeb' pic's on his site, but not sure if they're "world known" characters :-)

I went back and checked the caption under the photo. As grayvw pointed out, it was in Manhattan. Nice noticing the license plate.

I give her credit for going with a "clunky" retro folder. If I had money to burn, I'd probably get a Brompton S-Type.... they're so deliciously tiny.... so wonderfully dainty..... Back off! I'll make you fun-size!

I didn't know who she was but here's another pic of her. What a difference.

Unfortunately, being on her cell, spoils it for me. Maybe she isn't moving and is balancing the bike in place. :-)
