In the shadows of old Astor Place

Classic New York photo, much more appealing sight than a Starbucks!

Back in 1994, a friend and I were roaming the neighborhood while really high. My friend suddenly stopped short and said "Shhh, don't say anything...but that guy behind the newsstand -- it's Robert DeNiro !!" We stood in silent confusion for a few minutes. "Maybe he's working in a newsstand for a while, so he can learn how to act like a newsstand guy in a movie." "Uh-huh." More confusion. Good times.
