    Rickshaws in New York City





    I rode a train to New York City yesterday, and I managed to snap a few pictures of the Rickshaws in and around Central Park.

    These pullers charge a dollar a block. I did not see any velo-taxis, and I was told that they only come out in the Summer.

    I didn't feel like spending $38.00 on a ride, so I walked. I now have blisters on my feet.

    Nice photos. Given the cost of living in NYC (and most cities), how does one make enough money operating a rickshaw? I would suspect it's mainly tourists who use them and just how busy to they stay during the day?
