Nail biter

This was captured on Broadway in the Soho district. A place I used to visit frequently when I first moved here. Great for shopping and people watching. Over the years I do less shopping and even less Soho visits. However once in a while I like to take a trip down memory lane as they say. The area hasn't changed much, weekends are always packed with tourists, families and eager shoppers. It's the best crowd to get lost in, stake a position and snap away capturing people as is.

 

I've never really understood the nail biting habit, so much grime and dirt under those nails, I do not need to put it in my mouth. Is is some left over behavior from thumb sucking? Is it just an oral fixation need? It's definitely something, since even seniors still tend to nail bite.
