Vinnie, Da Noo Yawka (#338) 29-06-13

I met Vinnie, the consummate New Yorker, in Naples. He moved down one year ago to be closer to his son. He had lived in both Brooklyn and Staten Island, but much of what he knew in Staten Island was lost in Superstorm Sandy. And, he had worked on Wall St. During 9-11, and knew firemen who had died there.

I explained the 100 Stranger's project and showed him images on my smart phone. He said, "You want this mug (pointing) in there?" But really, he had no reservations. And he understood that the project was largely about meeting people.

So, look at that face. Has Vinnie seen a lot? Could you easily fool him?
