I don’t know how many people around the city have seen this guy. My first week at NYU I was reading a paper by the fountain. He was wearing a Spongebob vest and a variation on the hat that’s gracing the Singer. He was walking back and forth from the WSP Fountain to a tree with a gallon jug of water cut in half. He’d dip the jug into the fountain, carry the water to a spot under the tree. The water was poured on the floor (not on the roots of the tree, mind) and do a slight soft-shoe in the puddle. He mounted one of the stanchions of the fountain and proceeded to MJ crotch grab/raise hand in supplication. Welcome to NYU.
Since then, I’ve seen him around. I hope he’s okay.
