At 8:30 or so this morning... LES Jewels is passed out in front of Gem Spa.
A man walks up, looks at Jewels and says "It's Harry. Harry Hippie."
He leans down. "Harry. Harry! HARRY! HARRY HIPPIE."
Jewels doesn't move.
The man moves on, and explains to the hat crew outside Gem Spa that the person on the sidewalk is Harry Hippie. Harry, he says, has been working a lot lately and is tired.
The man, who is wearing headphones and listening to loud music, keeps walking west on St. Mark's.
"Harry Hippie" he says one last time, shaking his head.
He then stops a group of tourists who look to be in their 60s and tells them that he is from Ireland and Scotland. The group looks confused and continues walking.
