Al-Karappi, the Great Frozen Eye of Tehran

Washington Square Park is still full of chess players, though many of their tables will be "relocated" as construction further alters/dominates the park. That's progress! This fellow arrived from another dimension, I believe -- he looked right through me! (click pic for enlargement)

Dude looks like Kramer from Seinfeld!!

Do they still charge $2/game? Also I've seen a new group congregation at Union Square, on the west side of the park lately. I wonder if they were from Washington Square originally.

He looks like out English Guy Robbie Williams after a night on the town.
By the way that sunset on mine was for real, and I wasn't the only person to get it, barrow daily did too. I'll leave the gizmo's to someone who deosn't know how to take a photo.

Yeah - and Samuel L. Jackson stands behind him - and the guy behind it can't believe he's seeing him! Freaky!
But gooood!
