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.

I been working with this nonprofit Hunts Point Alliance for Children.

They have been working really hard and the money goes to a great charity.

Done!

Isador: Hunts Point Bronx

Chris Arnade (who took the above photograph) writes:

Isador was playing ball on the street while I was doing a photo shoot.

A huge Yankees fan, shortstop for his little league team, when asked who is favorite player is he said “Derek jeter! Do you really need to ask me that?”

Talking with him almost made me want to see Yankees beat the Red Sox. Almost.

This item comes courtesy of an anonymous tipster and hails from Hunts Point in the Bronx. Am I the only person who is wondering what made the posting of these new “house rules”  necessary? Priceless…
