Seen in the Sloop

Walking north on the 1400 and 1300 block of Wabash at 8:20am:

First spotting:
Young man with green, thick framed glasses. Styled blonde hair,
tight jeans, scooting down the sidewalk on his razor with
multi-color flashing lights within the wheels. Backback dangling on one
shoulder, one hand navigating the scooter, the other tipping his large coffee up to drink from.

Second spotting:
Crazy man who is always in my alley cleaning something (who knows what) on
old bike slowly peddaling down the street, muttering incoherent phrases and
aimlesly looking around.

Third spotting:
Mother pushing fancy stroller down the street with after picking up some
food down the street. Dressed in tights, big puffy vest and a
colorful knit beany on her head. Baby grinning from ear to ear
for no apparent reason. Mother oblvious to baby's state.

Man wearing a batman-like cape, helmet and holding what looks like an Uzi riding a Seegway North on State and Roosevelt being chased by cops.. 2008

What about the dude always wearing shorts with oversize-T, standing by Starbucks.

Also, religious newspaper guy with the crazy beard and willy wonka suits.

They RUN Roosevelt and Wabash.

Is this a joke?

Nice change from the regular random pictures. The people are what make the SL. Artists, yuppies, parents, hipsters.

That's me in the skinny jeans on my scooter.

What about the guy on the horse that's been seen on Indiana near Roosevelt a few times? He's not a cop, he wears a cowboy hat.
