New Yorkers are running out of things to do nine months into the COVID-19 pandemic.
Viral video from Sunday afternoon shows one particularly bored Bronxite passing the time with a “man on wire” attempt to cross an unused subway track on flimsy, narrow wooden beams held together by duct tape.
The man — who is wearing only socks, boxer-briefs, a face mask and winter hat — inches his way across the makeshift balance beam, which quickly falls under his weight, according to videos shared on social media.
“People was cheering him on, saying ‘you can do it,’” eyewitness Tyree Bowles told The Post.
“Everybody was recording. I had to post mine real fast, like, damn this is crazy. Only in New York is where this happens.”
Bowles, a New York City native who now lives in Richmond, Virginia, said the stunt took place around noon at the Fordham Road subway stop in the Bronx.
“New York is something else,” he said.
“That’s my hometown, but I mean, people out there do the strangest things in life, man.”
