Freddie.

Attended the wake of my friend Freddie Cadiz earlier this evening. He was a Puerto Rican born Vietnam War vet, Democrat, artist, moocher of cigarettes and Metrocards, and local Lower East Side hustler. We’d often walk down Rivington Street together whenever he was on his way to visit some friend or the other for beer or picking up something.

His last words to me, in August: “You look beautiful. Take care.”

LES ain’t the same without you, Freddie. 1947-2012. Rest in peace, friend.
