1996 : In the Street

Smiling man at 7th street and avenue A

John The Communist (L) and Anthony The Nazi chumming it up , a lesser reprising of the August 1939 Molotov/Von Ribbentrop diplomatic schmoozings , at Ray's Candy store .
In these days of yore Ray sold beer "under the counter" ; Schaefer's , Ballentine , Bud, Heineken and some of the time other brands also , all in 12 oz. and 40 oz. sizes . Of all the alternatives by far most popular was the 40 oz. Bud , some of the the contents of which has been poured into Anthony's and John's coffee cups . Indeed on this night their cups did "runneth over" perpetually.

Bedtime for John The Poet and Marlene (a.k.a. Hot Dog ) at Leshko's ( now Yuca Bar)
