Sidewalks of New York



Manhattan Judge Sherry Klein-Heitler did not find garden hoses laid across sidewalks or paths to be an inherent danger of bicycle riding in Manhattan, and has permitted Harry Eagle's lawsuit against Chelsea Piers, where, in 2001, he bicycled over a garden hose and crashed, to go forward. I wonder how many other hose-hating plaintiffs are going to come out of the woodwork before this is over.
