World’s tiniest man halts traffic on Manhattan’s 42nd Street

A visit by the world's shortest man (pictures) brought sidewalk traffic on Manhattan's busy 42nd Street to a halt.

The 20-year-old Chinese man is 2 feet, 5.37 inches (74.6 centimeters) tall. He was in the city to launch the 2009 edition of the Guinness Book of World Records, in which he is listed as the shortest man on the plant.

His brother-in-law told the Daily News in Friday editions that coming to New York is "like a dream" for Pingping, who lives in Mongolia and was born with primordial dwarfism.

Crowds in Manhattan stopped to gawk wherever he went. His brother-in-law said Pingping likes the attention.
