The Saturday Night Waiting Room at 7th and Avenue A
Face bathed in flashing red light , Cochise at the entrance of Tompkins Square Park , stood in quiet contemplation of the fire truck across avenue A attending to Igor . Igor was waiting for an ambulance ,FDNY was waiting with him . Igor didn't get his ambulance immediately because rather than calling 911 he pulled the FDNY lever at the corner call box .Igor got a fire truck right away , the ambulance arrived much later . Igor sat , well soused , in a chair at the corner of 7th street and avenue A waiting .
Half an hour or so earlier this same chair had another infamous occupant , L.E.S. Jewels , whom we pictured earlier brazenly stopping traffic on avenue A with a full pint of vodka in his hand .Seems that the vodka must have been consumed since Jewels was later found by an ambulance passed out sans vodka bottle in this same chair at the corner of 7th street and avenue A.
