Jamie "Dragon": Hunts Point Bronx

Chris Arnade (who took the above photograph) writes:

Jamie has lived underneath the Bruckner Expressway since 2004 when his mother died and her apartment was taken away. Jamie now spends his day collecting cans and bottles along the roadway.

Nicknamed “Dragon” because he is always dragging on a cigarette (and hence the shield on front of his cart) he was heading towards the store to buy more when I ran into him. We chatted over a brown bag of beer while the traffic rumbled by.
