Bike Messengers

Across from the building I work in, there is a Starbucks. It's more of less in the middle of the Financial District, and across the street from the Starbucks there is a small park. During business hours, you can find at least two bike messengers at all times in or around this Starbucks. They lean their bikes against the building and head inside to stay warm and get a coffee during the winter. You can see a few of them walking out of my photo (I don't think that was a coincidence!), and they're heading into a little nook where they often hang out to smoke or stay out of the rain or snow. During the summer, they line their bikes up along the fence of the park across the street and hang out on the benches there.
