Walking over to the HighLine the other day, we came upon this amazing scene…

…the King of Cans was so absorbed in his book, he didn’t notice us, or the traffic zooming past. We wondered how long it took him to collect all those cans, and what the pay-off would be. We saw him as a city survivalist, foraging for the resources around him, taking care of himself…

…and wondered what he was reading.
