This is kind of crazy but I think Nick totally lived around the corner from me in Brooklyn. I saw him on the street once and his yellow scooter was always parked on the block! I noticed the scooter was missing...hope it made the trip to France too!

Oh cool, where did you live? I lived on Garden Pl. and State St. Had a red motorcycle I parked at that corner sometimes too.

Traded the scooter for a painting. Sold the other motorcycle. Now searching for another one in France.

Hope you're enjoying your time in that neighborhood. It's lovely.

I live on the corner of Garden Pl and Joralemon. It is lovely--my favorite part is hearing the foghorns at night. Good luck on the motorcycle search! I think the vintage Gimas are real cute if you're going to go French manufactured.

Ha! The title is hilariously appropriate. I just might have to pick up one...or two....of these for my brother.
