Thanks for looking and for the comments all! Some notes:
#1 Yes, that's the same guy under the plastic sheet, this is how he sleeps when it is cold.
#2 was taken on a different day, early morning when the sun was still low.
This person is an enigma. I see him almost everyday as I take my son to school in Manhattan. He never bothers anybody, he doesn't beg for anything at all. One day I bought a cup of coffee and some rice cakes and offered it to him. He just smiled and shook his head. I was quite stunned with the polite refusal. A few weeks later, just to see if he will decline again, I bought breakfast from a nearby diner and offered it again. Same result. I am bewildered that someone in the depths of poverty would turn down a meal. Where does his strength come from? What is his source of enlightenment? I am reminded by the song of The Beatles, The Fool On The Hill. It may turn out that he knows what's really going on in this world, and I am the fool for possessing such worldly goods.
Forgive the rambling. Photos were taken with a G6, by the way.
