Seen in NYC

… whizzing past the Flatiron Building.

I’ve known these were coming ever since I dropped that “pedaling” clue a few posts down, but this is the first report I’ve received of one actually being seen on the streets.

So far as I know, they are only on the streets of New York. Sorry, no, I don’t know where you can find them, how many there are, or how long they will be around… but if I find out, I’ll be sure to tell you here.

I want to ride in one soon!

And here’s the official skinny on the pedicabs.

Yes, there’s more than one. A whole fleet, in fact.

(And a shout out here to JetboyGirl, our own resident BWB pedicabbie. Hey, Kate, how’d you like one of these?)

Rides are complimentary, it says right there on the pedicabs.

As to where to find them… good question. I’d look around Central Park and COlumbus Circle myself, though who knows? The first one was spotted at the Flatiron, a long way downtown, so the cabs could be popping up all over.

Have fun hunting for them, guys.

And number 16 too…

… in Brazil, that is.

My Brazilian publishers have informed me that the first two books of A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE have made the main Brazilian bestseller lists:

Very cool! Thanks to all my Brazilian readers. I hope you’ve enjoyed the books.
