Manuel: Mott Haven, Bronx

In an otherwise desolate industrial strip south of the Bruckner is Playground One Thirty Four (creative name), a mostly concrete triangle bordered by The Deegan and Bruckner Expressways. During the weekends it becomes an outdoor Latino party, with Schwinn crews, Bikers, Classic Cars, food stands, and Salsa bands.

 

Manuel is almost always there, singing with the bands; his voice is as great as his style. Just wish I had gotten a better photo with his skeleton earring....
