Eugene: Mott Haven Bronx

This second portrait was taken by Chris Arnade, who writes:

Eugene was panhandling and drinking outside of a Bodega. Homeless, he sleeps either inside the Bodega or in a shelter. He only drinks beer, “never having done any of that other stuff.” The owner of the store tells me he would “trust Eugene with his life, he is the most loyal man I know.” When I asked Eugene about the crown, he said its to show the world that his parents are with him, souls who live in his heart.
