Walking barefoot on the pavement: gross. Imagine if she did that in 1987-92 with all the crack needles everywhere.

Uh take the pole vaulting back to University Of ____________. So sick of this college in NYC bullshit.

I gotta say NYC is a city of mostly decent people cuz I guarantee some asshole would pop those balloons in some other city.

Residents of most cities (if not all) in the US are pretty decent. So no, people probably wouldn't pop those balloons "in some other city."

Time to travel a bit.

Hey, I walked barefoot on St. Mark's Place in 1968 - I was in Manhattan for an event on a nice summer's day, and my shoes gave me such horrible blisters that I simply took them off and walked barefoot until it was time to get back on the subway. AND I'm still alive to talk about it!

Actually, it was mostly crack VIALS. But I wouldn't have wanted to step on those either.

Haha! I love hearing that while in Manhattan for an event your feet gave you blisters. I, too, used to visit NYC and get blisters. Because I'd always want to look my coolest - and that meant new shoes. Now that I live here I make a point of looking at the outfits of anybody using a paper map here (guaranteed tourist)... And sure enough: always wearing brand new shoes! Mine? Eternally dusty-grey (no idea how they get THAT bad - am I stepping on my own toes?!).
