Maspeth Photos Du Jour: Bob

This evening my buddy Carnade and I went on a quick sojourn around Newtown Creek. It was at the end of 58th Road that we met Bob. He seemed surprised by us and we were certainly surprised to encounter him: a man in a van smoking a cigar and watching the world go by. We explained to him we were taking photographs of the creek. This interested him (a retired DEP employee) considerably and he told us stories about coming to Newtown Creek in the 1950’s a child. Bob then proceeded to explain to us why he happened to be in such a desolate area on a Saturday evening: he is not allowed by his wife to smoke cigars. Period. He clarifies:

So I come down here, have my cigar and turn on Sean Hannity. That gets my anger going.

Your secret is safe with us, Bob!
