Stranger 51/100 | Easter Parade in New York

This finely fettled fellow hails from yesterday’s Easter Parade. Michael Tapp, who had the pleasure of making this man’s¬†acquaintance¬†writes:

On Easter Sunday the city shuts down part of 5th avenue for the Easter Parade. No obnoxious vendors and halal, people just strut down 5th avenue in their Sunday best.

I spotted this man from a distance and I knew he would be a great subject. He knew exactly what to do and I didn’t have to direct him at all. I wanted to find out more about him but he went off to start posing for shots with children and other people. He actually reached out to people to get them in photos with him. He’s actually a pretty joyful guy.

As I have previous stated, yesterday I spent late afternoon and evening with the inimitable Carnade knocking around Sunset Park. In addition to making the acquaintance of Thatcher the Bodega Cat and stumbling upon a particularly nifty piece by Dan Witz we saw (and photographed) a lot of neat stuff. Follows are some highlights from yours truly. Enjoy!

Urban Fur: Meet The Iron Lady

This afternoon/evening yours truly went on a photo walk with a frequent contributor of my photo pool: Carnade. Knowing my affection for Mexican culinary items we decided to check out Sunset Park. He played tour guide. Where he went, I followed. One of the stops we made was at the above bodega: Sam’s Grocery. It is, as I learned, a very curious place. For starters I met Sam: he is Lebanese. For those of you playing along at home (and to make it perfectly clear) we are in a bodega which sells Mexican groceries whose (very nice) proprietor hails from the Middle East. Stuff such as this is why I love New York City. But it gets much more interesting, as you will see.

Meet Sam’s bodega cat in residence. Carnade inquired as to what this fetching feline’s name was.


Sam replied. Carnade and I couldn’t believe what we just heard so we asked again.

Thatcher, you know after the British Prime Minister. It’s a nice name, yes?

Sam said.

Me (once I absorbed what I have just heard):

I guess it depends on one’s politics.

Then Carnade asked the $64,000 question:

Do you like Margaret Thatcher?

To wit Sam gave the coup de grace:

No, I hate her.

And then he proceeded to explain why. Inasmuch I could ascertain Sam’s dislike of Ms. Thatcher had something to do with Cyprus. Exactly why Sam elected to name this (very friendly) cat after the Iron Lady remains a mystery. Methinks it is probably better that way.
