One sees less and less of these wonderful, archetypal, NYC characters on its streets, which continue to get mere crowded every year, and yet more homogenized.


I've never seen anybody dressed like that, so NYC must still be special.

I know the Bruce Gilden video comments have been extensive, both pro and con. I'm not bothered by the photographing, though I much prefer his earlier work, Coney Island, etc.

I am bothered by the stobe in the face, from very short range. To me, that is almost assault, no, I think a case could be made that it is assault.

I'll be - if it's not long lost uncle Morty - still wearing the shark skin suit!
