Man in Van Lives Down By River

FreeWilliamsburg has this great video interview with a guy named Jimmy Tarangelo, who’s been living in a van by the Hudson River for eight years. He lives with four dogs, “who protect him,” and sometimes he’ll get an egg sandwich at Dunkin’ Donuts, “for a treat on weekends.” He “wants for nothing,” though “the hardest part is not having a bathroom.” He’s an optimist and is hopeful for the future. Jesus, just watch the video, what a fucking good guy.
