      Has anyone else noticed that he kind of looks like the Asian guy in the Hangover movies? Like maybe this guy got a bit too drunk and went off the rails? (I’m Asian-American by the way so this isn’t a case of me thinking all Asians look alike)

      WSR: Thanks for posting this and helping those missing.

      There is a large Asian community on Riverside Blvd, perhaps his picture could be circulated or posted there.

      With all the change and “progress” that goes in the neighborhood, moneyed transients flashing their green and acting like Master of Universes–defenders of UWSkull, not being able to afford what once once affordable, the familiar becoming unfamiliar, another wine bar, and constantly dodging those blessed greenwashing alternate mode of transportation machines not stopping at red lights and not yielding to those who have aright of way I would be disoriented too.

      I was there and it was on West 69th St. Not 68th. I’m sure it won’t make a difference but just wanted to straighten that out. I thought it was possible he might work for Empire Szechuan Restaurant since he was sitting near the rear entrance to that restaurant. The employees are so stressed out and over worked from what I’ve heard it’s possible.
      Hope he’s OK.
