One early morning in approximately 1982, I was walking through Central Park in Manhattan and to my surprise I saw a man arouse from his sleep on a park bench, he had been sleeping on the bench all night.
He had what seemed to be all his earthly possessions in a supermarket trolley beside him. Later on that day when I had my camera on me, I got a couple of pictures of him, you can see him below, his name was Gene Palma.
In the picture below, you can see a straight black line up his shirt, he got that line from lying on the park bench night after night.
He was the guy who appeared in a scene of the movie “Taxidriver.”
I was telling a Facebook friend about this last night and he replied “lol Thats showbiz!”
Time flies by so quickly don`t you think?
