What I saw in Sunset Park: Puerto Rican Walker

Puerto Rican Walker, originally uploaded by veesvision.

This guy is a friend in my head. I don't know him and he does not know me but we see each other all the time. I love that he rocks the Puerto Rican gear and walks with his own theme music. One day I will introduce myself.

The most interesting portion of the picture now after the editing, however, are the guys in the background. (They don't look that happy with me shooting.) But it speaks to the changes in the area. Once populated by Puerto Ricans and Dominicans, business on 5th ave in Sunset Park are now catered to and operated mainly by Mexican, Central, and South American.
