Anyone in NYC with a vehicle?

...that would be willing to pick up a bumper from Washington and 13th for me? It's in the back of the Global' Puma defender and I'm having a hard time getting up to Manhattan before they check out of their hotel. I know most of us seem to head into NYC via public transport.

Crap, you should have told me, I would have snagged it when they dropped off the tires and kept it at my house for you.

take the train in and carry it home. they only weigh 37 lbs.

or maybe they can leave it with the concierge.

The first part sounds like more of an adventure than the bullrun!
It might come down to the concierge.

Thank you guys for all the offers of help. In the end the hotel's threat to put my bumper out on the sidewalk called my bluff. I rented a Malibu and drove to the Meatpacking district. For anyone that's curious; an NAS rear step-bumper will fit across the backseat of a mid sized domestic sedan!

Who knew this was such a dainty bumper that it would fit back there? The bell-hop was marvelling at all the exotic car parts left for pick-up by the bullrunners; the standout items being the Aston Martin wheelset that were still there when I picked up the step-bumper.
