Rocky & Tee: Designers Behind Dope-Ties @Union Square

 “We both are from Miami I just moved out here she will be moving out here  in the summer and right now we make these things called Dope-Ties.”  At Union Square, I met creativeKunts Rocky ,21, & T ,20, and their friends that support them. Our conversation covers fashion, life, politics, KONY and and their 2 friends each share a personal story.  One of the young fellas says..”we are all little orphans..its hard..we were raised in a place about this size (he uses the hat on his head as a reference) ..its really hard for us..we look in local garbage cans..we do thrifting in the garbage he points to his shoes, jeans and shirts he says “this is from central park, washing sq and this is union..thats the brands..we just trying to rise above it all. ..we have to make it.”

Life Lessons From A Tribeca Homeless Man

 “When I first became homeless, I use to pray that I die for 6 months…that was back in ’87” Jerry,52, may be homeless but his mind isnt. I met Jerry in Tribeca. Our conversation is inspiring to say the least.  The street lights are on a timer. They come on and off every 2 minutes. Jerry’s face begins to appear at the :35 second mark. He shares his story, a new year’s resolution, tips if you become homelsss, this favorite Bible passage and strongly suggests that everyone “diversify their finances”.

 The best thing about waiting for a NYC subway is forgetting you were waiting for a train. What train? The drums are here. While walking along the 4 train platform at 125th street, a group of artist took me and everyone somewhere else. I Love NYC!
