Jesus: East Tremont, Bronx

The Bronx pigeon guys are more scattered than those in Brooklyn, but if there is a center its East Tremont. Thats where I found Jesus, in front of a stand alone house nestled amongst huge bulking apartment buildings. An architectural anachronism, a rural puerto rican home, complete with chickens, in the heart of the Bronx.

 

Jesus was returning with a captured pigeon, bringing it to the coops he keeps on a nearby apartment building where he is the super.

 

I really need to change the name of the series, its no longer just Bushwick proper.
