Wes Anderson’s Municipal Periwinkle Penny-Farthing (It’s a Citi Bike)


Chapter 1:

In the summer of 2015, pedestrians in Manhattan were struck by the sight of Wes Anderson — formerly a directorial prodigy; now, at the age of 46, a respected member of his field — riding a Citi Bike down 19th Street on what felt like (but was indeed not) the hottest day of the year. Despite the August humidity, Anderson was wearing a full suit. Upon noticing this, passersby stopped dead in the middle of the frame and remarked, "Oh."
