This is ‘New York’. He and I met a while back when I was helping someone in his project move. We connected pretty quickly from both being from New York (even though I’m from upstate).
When I got the greenlight to do the video, I thought he’d be a good candidate to film because his face seems to have a story. He showed me around the projects that he was living and introduced me to a lot of his friends (he’s currently outside of the apartment of Gary, the guy that was smoking crack).
