Life amid New York's Dominique Strauss-Kahn 'circus'

French tourists as well as media from around the world are flocking to Franklin Street in New York's TriBeCa district to catch a glimpse of Dominique Strauss-Kahn.

The former IMF chief, accused of sexually assaulting a hotel chambermaid, has taken up residence on Franklin Street in New York's historic TriBeCa district.

His celebrity has turned a normally sleepy street into something of a circus, as one resident, New York journalist Michael Maher, has been finding out.
