At right, a real estate developer. At left, his assistant. Here at Kava Shteeble, they're discussing the Bed-Stuy properties the developer is aggressively pursuing to buy, the owners of which his assistant is contacting daily. While I took this photo they were talking about a property the assistant will call about tomorrow. The assistant has reservations.

“What, you’re worried you’ll sound like a schmuck?”

“Yeah”

“I don’t care, you’ll make some money.”

“I call this guy every day. He says ‘Sir, take me off you’re fucking list.’”

“Whatever, it doesn’t matter.”
