Upper East Side Parents Fear Tricycle Theft


That is a little kid’s tricycle on 59th Street and 1st Avenue. It is obviously a thing of great value and distinction, an objet d’art if you will, and as such it merits being locked to a bike rack. Because people want to steal tricycles, because they’re special things. And children are special. Yes, every individual child is special, particularly your child. Your child is the most special child in New York, and his/her tricycle is the most special tricycle in New York, and you have to be incredibly careful to lock it up, otherwise the hunk of plastic will surely be gone within minutes.
