In my small city in NY, if I came across someone laying on the sidewalk, I would call 911 and see if I could help him. If he had been attacked I would be his protector until the police showed up.

BUT, we don't have people laying on our sidewalks. This would obviously be a situation that needed my attention.

Not so sure this would be the case in NYC. I have seen, for myself, a homeless guy sleeping on the sidewalk outside the Javits Center. I didn't call 911. I figured he was sleeping. He was, as he was later awakened by our groups presence.

I saw a bum laying on a bench just outside Central Park. He had blood on his head and there was a small pool of blood on the sidewalk below his head. Did I call 911? No. There were HUNDREDS of people on the sidewalks and I figured someone must have already called and I was just a tourist. After I walked away a police car and ambulance pulled up to that location.

Don't be so quick to condemn those NYers. It's a different world.

1) This guy was laying in a pool of blood.

2) I've lived in New York City all my life and know first-hand how cowardly and unconcerned most people here are.
