Sunday Evening The Reverend Billy's Campaign Trail Led Down Crusty Row to Ray's Candy Store ...
Some surprised regular inhabitants of Crusty Row this evening were unprepared for a visit from a candidate for Mayor . The Reverend Billy strolled down the row of park benches after an afternoon of rehearsals and a potluck dinner sur l'herbe in Tompkins Square Park . This evening the campaign trail led the Reverend Billy and his choir , by way of Crusty Row , to Ray's Candy Store .
Encomium with choral accompaniment cheered and lifted a dispirited Ray at the front door of his store . 76 year old Ray was praised and thanked for being the good and worthy person who has helped so many over the past 35 years . His candy store's years as a unique part of this East Village community were celebrated too . This little bit of support for Ray , whose candy store is facing a very uncertain future , brought at once a smile to Ray's face and then a tear or two to his eyes .

Praise Rev Billy! He's got my vote just based on his platform--a gospel choir at Gracie Manson is a bonus!
Thanks for reminding me what a big dishonest poser he is -- he is a sell out "brand" wannabe using people like Ray -- sad stuff and it reflects badly on the green party as in $green. Surprising he walks amongst usPost a Comment
