Bobby B again: Mott Haven Bronx

Chris Arnade (who took the above photograph) writes:

Bobby B, one of my favorite characters from this summer. I finally made it back to give him a copy of the first picture I took of him (Bobby B). “Damn I am good looking” he said with a big smile.

When a friend of Bobby B’s expressed concern about letting me take his picture, Bobby B said “No, don’t worry hes bona fide.”

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”

Jesus and Graffiti:  Mott Haven Bronx

Of this (which hails from Mott Haven) Carnade writes:

Louis wanted to show me the wall that was upset with and protesting, because of the use of satanic symbols. He was nice enough to show me around his part of the Bronx, an area I need to spend more time in.

Great shot!
