Bayard Buddies

This is me and my buddy Felix. He works next door as a waiter.

When you work a million hours a week, you learn to be friends with everyone on your block to maintain a so called social life.

Felix is from China but his English is excellent. He tells me that his secret for learning good English, was watching Sex in the City.

He works a lot of hours but the economy here is terrible. He's thinking about possibly going home to China instead of staying here. At least there, he has his family and friends.

The Chinatown economy is hurting a lot. From the vacant store fronts to the blocks shut down on Canal.

I'll be sad if another one of my friends on block leaves...
