New York's pedicabs
Tourists who visit New York City have many options for getting around the city. One popular means of transportation around Central Park is the pedicab. It's a sort of rickshaw bicycle with a two-seater bench in the back. There are an estimated 600 pedicabs in Manhattan. Most of the drivers are athletic young men from... well... somewhere else. That gives the ride around Manhattan a distinctly international flavor.
