Bobby B: Mott Haven Bronx

Chris Arnade (who took the above photograph) writes:

I was back in Mott Haven to find a few folks and give them copies of their pictures, including Luis

Bobby B was hanging near the Bodega and after seeing Luis’s picture wanted one of himself. Born in N Carolina hes spent most of his life in the Bronx. Recently retired he’s soon heading back south. A warm smiling man, he choose to show a little attitude for this picture.

His friend said “Don’t let him take your picture, he might be the po po” Bobby B replied “I aint worried about no police, its the lord that’s gonna judge me, and this here boy sure ain’t the lord”
