Knife Juggler at First Park [Video]
Last week, this so-called knife juggler (nay, thrower) was wowing passersby outside First Park on East Houston with his total lack of coordination. Seriously, nearly every toss of the blade resulted in a metallic clank on the sidewalk.

Not surprisingly, most pedestrians steered clear of his hijinx.
And here is the Parks Department description of the 1.39 acre First Park:
This playground is named for its location on East First Street and First Avenue. It first opened in 1935, and was a typical product of the W.P.A. (Works Progress Administration) initiative to create recreational areas in the City. Following a period of neglect, this park was reclaimed by a series of neighborhood organizations working with City officials to once again provide a welcome respite from the surrounding traffic.
