2015 NYC Unicycle Festival in the News

Tuesday, September 8th, 2015

[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="500" caption="Photo courtesy of Metro - New York Edition"][/caption] Reporter, Chester Soria put together an excellent write up for this year's Unicycle Festival that made the front page of the September 8th New York edition of the   Metro newspaper. I exited the subway this morning and grabbed a copy of the free news paper, folded it and slipped in my shoulder bag. When I got into my office I was pleasantly surprised to see a unicycle gracing  the front page. Over the last 5 years the festival has made the front page of many of the local borough wide papers.  For last year's festival there was this article in the New York Daily News written by by Doyle Murphy.  However, this year has been the first time  that I recall the festival making the front page of a city wide distributed newspaper. Check out the Metro article and the slide show of photos taken for Brooklyn Unicycle day. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="503" caption="Photo courtesy of Keith Nelson via The New York Times"][/caption] Not to be completely out shown by the the Metro, Laurel Graeber who writes children interest stories for the New York Times wrote this descriptive piece in the Art section of the times. She actually used a photo from the 2014 Unicycle Festival in order to make the deadline for Thursday's paper. But that is okay since the same two boys in the photo, Harry and Ziggy, had a rematch during this year's festival.

[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="380" caption="Photo courtesy of Keith Nelson via DNA info"][/caption] DNA info's Irene Plagianos also wrote a nice description in her coming events article in last Tuesdays edition of the magazine. They also posted a 2014 sumo contest photo this time with two of the festivals dedicated volunteer staffers going at it. If there are additional articles released in this weeks local papers, I will add them to this post so return to our website and check them out. In the meantime there are plenty of photographs for you to check out in the links included in my previous posts.

Unicyclist Exonerated

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

As reported in the New York Post, Isaih Rosemond  appeared before Manhattan Judge John Delury who dismissed the ticket after having to read up on the the statute involved. The judge reportedly offered Isaih an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal, or ACD. Upon learning that the accepting the ACD meant that he would have to stay out of trouble for six months in order for the ticket to be dismissed, Isaih refused to accept the ACD asking for a jury trial instead.  The judge being faced with this request actually read the law involved and determined that a unicycle is not described in the law. There is a more thorough article with deeper analysis regarding Isaih's trip to court written in the Simple Justice Blog.

Again We Have To Fight For The Right To Ride.

Friday, June 29th, 2012
[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="180" caption="Photo courtesy of Courier Life Brooklyn Daily"][/caption]

Isaih Rosmond is pictured above showing the summons that he received from a NYPD police officer for riding his unicycle on the sidewalk on his way to school in Brooklyn. Upon being stopped by the police Isaih pull out his smart phone and looked up the necessary information to prove that it is not illegal to ride a unicycle on the the sidewalk. The police officer ignored him and continued to write and issue the summons.  In this article in the Courrier Life Brooklyn Daily, Kyle Petersen, The Brooklyn Juggler is chronicled as having reached out to Isiah to offer advice based upon his own experience in having to fight multiple violations issued by the NYPD.  If you are unfamiliar with Kyles cases, check my previous postings regarding his summons and lawsuit against the City of New York. My advice is to immediately let the officer know that there is no law in the state that mentions or even describes a unicycle.

The photo above comes from an August 26th article in The Brooklyn Paper written by Meridith Deliso entitled Get rollin'! Unicycle Fest returns on Sept.2 The article briefly describes the 2011 festival as it was about to happen. The same article without the photo appeared in the Courier Life's Brooklyn Daily.

This second image comes from the The Wall Street Journal in an September 3rd article entitled For One, and for All written by V. L. Hendrickson. This is a more comprehensive article about the 3 day event with quotes from Keith Nelson of the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus, David Stone founder of the New York Unicycle Club and, Kyle Peterson alias The Brooklyn Juggler who is best known for fighting against the City of New York for being ticketed for legally riding his unicycle.

This image is of a young lady, Emily Season, who has tricked her unicycle out to look like a seahorse, comes from an extensive article published on September 6 on ESPN Page 2 entitled: Unicycles make mark in New York City. This article written by Ken Derry,  gives extensive coverage to the activities that took place on Governors Island. He has enhanced his article with several personal interest stories from some of the participant unicyclists.

This last image appeared in the Columbia Spectator in an article entitled Unicyclers wheel quirky MoHi fest race written by Steven Lau. Steven interviewed several unicyclist at Grant's Tomb gathering information in order to put together this article.

Many more websites that promote events around the New York city have given mention to this years unicycle festival. We would like to thank them for helping to promote unicycling in New York and this year's unicycle festival. We hope that even more sites and sponsors will give us recognition for next year's annual event.

Unicycle law suit deflated by judge’s ruling

Saturday, May 21st, 2011
Kyle Peterson, who as earlier reported, filed a lawsuit in federal court against the city of New York for charging him with a misdemeanor for riding his unicycle on a Brooklyn sidewalk. Has had his lawsuit dismissed by Judge Brian Cogan. The dismissal of his lawsuit has been reported in article in the New York Daily News by John Marzulli. In an more extensive article written in the Gothamist by John Del Signore you can read the entire decision by Judge Cogan. Since there has been so much attention brought to unicycling by this lawsuit the saga may not be quite over. I will keep you posted with any major news affecting unicycling within the city of New York.
