Have I spotted a new trend here? A couple weeks ago, when I was in NYC, I saw a guy walking down the street carrying a half-mannequin, and I found it a little odd, and a little humorous. But yesterday I was in NYC again, and saw another guy walking around town with his mannequin near 6th Avenue and 32nd Street. It gives the appearance that the mannequin is looking through oncoming traffic in order to hail a cab, and in the 2nd picture, has perhaps alerted her male companion that one is on the horizon. I hope they got to where they needed to go.
