Johnny Bizzare Arrested in T.S.P. Friday Afternoon

Friday afternoon an NYPD team led by Deputy Inspector Lehr , commander of the 9th precinct , on routine patrol in Tompkins Square Park arrested Johnny Bizzare .We saw a mostly empty liquor bottle and heard police mention needles and public urination.
We last pictured Johnny here at NMNL with his tongue in a mousetrap .
Today it was Johnny's wrists that were restrained  in a set of regulation NYPD cuffs.
Police personnel also cautiously took possession of a hammer , the one that Johnny uses in his performances to hammer nails up his penis .
Sitting on a near-by blanket L.E.S Jewels sat canoodling with a new 19 year-old admirer.
Jewels had recently been a student of Johnny's, learning to stick nails up his penis .When we posted on Johnny last time ,Jewels had only been able to get the nails part way up his penis .  With this past claim in mind we asked Jewels if he had made any progress . According to Jewels Friday afternoon , no progress has been made , he can only get the nail part way up his penis .

Wednesday Afternoon on Crusty Row

Elias with Mom Sharon and T.C. in Tompkins Square Park

A Crusty stood crying today because he needed a bag of dope . He had lost his dog and needed to get high .A friend attempted to console him as well as knock some sense into him .

Behind us at a distance an ambulance was preparing to remove a client to a local detox ward .

In the distance  a man in a dark blue shirt preached the Gospel to 20 or so well behaved  others , also in dark blue shirts,quietly listening seated along the arc of benches  under the Hare Krishna tree . Biblical tales of misery ,loss,hope, salvation and mystery .Tales of a substance much as that of  a typical day in Tompkins Square Park ... but in words only , dry and distant from the day's sauce of real tribulations and miseries .

We hadn't seen Sharon in over 3 years , we had never seen Elias . 3 years ago were  more difficult times for Sharon .Things are better today.
