The next Farnsworth Bentley
Upon seeing the guy's picture in this Times article, the first thing I thought of was Farnsworth Bentley. Well, almost. He's a shoe salesman at Bergdorf's. A few highlights in this article: he grew up in the Walt Whitman houses in Ft. Greene, used to be a Foot Locker employee and was once told off by a woman that he should come back in 10 years when he's pulled up his pants and gotten rid of all his gold teeth.
