This is the same friendly neighborhood drunk guy from photo 55 “Hanging Around on 2nd Street”. This photo makes me sad. I was actually a bit conflicted about posting it because I was imagining him as some little kid’s grandfather. I took another photo that I like of a cute dog in our corner bodega, but I’ve decided to post this one because it’s just so much more compelling. Plus, this guy’s been a part of my life here in the East Village for years – and that’s a big piece of this 365 project… recording what’s going on in my life. So…there you have it.
PS – “He Sleeps” is definitely from Pretty Woman – good job Jen & Jill!
Love our guy
I feel sad for him too. However, he’s in an endless state of drunkenness which is his own choice. Have you had a chance to talk to him?
I always say hi and we have had some little interactions – like when I took his photo last time. But I think he only speaks Spanish.
