Kids, c. 8 years old, yelling at a group of cyclists on Avenue C:
“What are you doing on a bike you pussy?”
“Can’t you ride a skateboard?”
“Why are you going so slow?”
“Are you afraid? Is that why you got a helmet?”
“You are all a bunch of pussies man. You all need to get on skateboards.”
The cyclists had slowed for the lights, and were cracking up at the kids’ taunts.
Neither of the kids had skateboards.
