Rickshaw Spidey Spotted on Ludlow Street [Video]
Rickshaw Spidey almost exclusively performs his acrobatic stunts around Tompkins Square Park. Rarely crossing the border of East Houston.

Shaun Emerson, a thirty-something transplant from Miami, is the daredevil dude behind the nighttime gimmick. Apparently he entered the Miami rickshaw business in the early aughts and began donning the costume during “Spider-Man Saturdays” to stand apart from the competition. He’s been “performing” in New York for a few years now.
