Abandoned bikes in NY - pictures

After an absense of many, many months I return with this link to some pictures of abandoned bikes in NY. If this is in anyway a repost I apologise.

I always see abandoned bikes and I'd grab up a good frame if they weren't always locked to something. Sometimes the chains are more valuable than the bike.

That classic Trek in a snowbank makes me sad.

some of those bikes didn't look abandoned. they just looked like bikes locked up - that may be dirty.

I want that tall bike, and I want some of the old bikes and BMX's.

And the boobs at the bottom of the page.

My favorite pic was of the two locked bikes hanging out of a second floor window. If NYC has a public nusiance act some of the trashed bikes could be freed with a cutting torch and sold to a scrap dealer. Trouble is the proceedures to remove the bike would cost more than the salvage value. In my area one dark night the worst ones would just be gone.
