A cream colored Vespa ET4 that has sat in the same spot through rain, wind, and snow on the upper East side over the past few months – without any form of lock or chain and the plate removed – sparked a mystery among local residents.
Spotted this morning in the East Village. Unfortunately the angle of this photo doesn’t do the angle of the bike justice which was teetering nervously on one foot of its stand. Scratches, dents, and dings. A fact of life in NYC.
WNYC reporter, and fellow scooterist, Jim Colgan, has spent the past two weeks interviewing local riders culminating in a short video piece that draws attention to the frustrations of scootering in the Big Apple.
