Do you by any chance know of the legendary Catfish…? He looks like a catfish and always growling or drinks vodka around the park. One night a hipster bumped him and he smashed his guitar then proceeded to scream like a werewolf. He’s become my hero ever since…
he’s the one in the wool cap in the pic.
I would like to take a moment to give a big New York Shitty salute to our man Catfish for keeping Garden Spot real— one guitar at a time! Pete Townsend would be proud.
