This blog is mainly about the going-ons of the L.E.S (Lower East Side), and some interesting shots around the city.

Broome Street Jumper
Cops trying to negotiate with the jumper in the hopes of talking him down.
Under covers re taping, and pushing us back.
According to a passerby, a guy standing on the fourth floor of a building scaffold was threatening to jump. Police quickly set up a perimeter. We went around to Broome and Lafayette to get a better view. When we got there, the police tape was taken down, and a small crowd of people formed. (mostly press) A few minutes later, some under cover cops started screaming for us to "get back behind the police tape!" and quickly roped it off. We are unsure about what happened to the jumper.
