No Pedestrians Are Killed…
Looking into the Hudson at 29th St. Thursday. No people were killed…
It was too cold for this, 17 degrees and very, very windy…
The piers are no longer present… below a small heliport; across the street from something like a sanitation parking/working area… My right hand is frozen… He still grasps a camera…
