Barclay, from Panama, at Pier 15 on Flickr.(54/100 Strangers) 
“I’m from Panama. You know the Panama Canal?”, Barclay asked me. 21 years ago, he moved to New York, after Noreiga was arrested. “I was his bodyguard.” 
He’s retired now, but he worked for the Grand Central Post Office. When I asked him if he missed Panama, he told me he’s much better life now then he ever did there. I met him on the eve of Mother’s Day, but he was already celebrating, despite being the only one alive from his family, aside from a sister (still in Panama). We spoke for quite a while. He had a lot to say on the latest news, and pulled out the paper to discuss recent stories. “I like to read,” he told me. We spoke about the owner of the LA Clippers, President Obama, and Hillary running for office. He also liked hear about me, and told me he loves meeting people. He was a bit distraught about how people let unsavory things trip them up, but seemed will to give many people a fair shot. 
When complimenting him on his attire, Barclay told me he dresses this way every day.

Stevie in Dumbo, from Beijing on Flickr.(53/100 Strangers) Originally from Beijing, I ran across Stevie in Dumbo, admiring the Manhattan Bridge. She’s a model, and had just finished up a photo shoot.  — Even as a candid, Stevie drew everyone’s attention, seeming to fit right in the with towering manhattan bridge, and the cast iron gates. I just had to ask for her photo. — Stevie came to New York to work on he BA in Fashion Management, and has been modeling for the last 2 years, as she finishes up her degree in Midtown. When not of the set, she resides just across the Hudson near Jersey City.
