Johnny: Bushwick Brooklyn

Chris Arnade (who took the above photograph) writes:

Johnny, eighty six, has been keeping birds in Bushwick since he was a boy.

Goodwin brought me to meet Johnny, who keeps his birds on one of Goodwin’s roofs. I asked why he gave Johnny the space for free, Goodwin said “he is a good person, and the birds are what keeps him happy now.”

Climbing the ladder to the roof was a chore for me, but Johnny’s age does not seem to slow him down.

He had a small collection, but they were all gorgeous.
