A bicycle thief



Here's a partial narrative from a 7 year old recounting how his bicycle was stolen on Seventh Street... via @XoomNYC

Kids these days... only in New York.

I'm gonna stop by Xoom and see if they know the family. If they are low income... it's the holidays coming up I can easily afford to spring for a new bike for the little kid. What a great little drawing and story. I feel so bad for the little dude.

I am a little bit more happy too reading this... but a little bit more sad this stuff happens.

Thanks Shawn! That is so sweet!
There was to be another chapter titled"my new bike"which he already described by the time we hit the bus after talking to the cops.
So, just for THAT, he actually got a new, improved bike and realized that some people are bad enough inside to steal a kid's bike and there's not much you can do about that.
He's super stoked with the new one and the old one is just an old story now.
I'm still looking for it though. I don't know why...
You could drop by XOOM though just to drop by XOOM.
