Whenever people asked him, Eric Cash used to have a dozen answers: artist, actor, screenwriter....But now he's 35 years old and he's still living downtown, still in the restaurant business, working night shifts and serving the people he always wanted to be. What does Eric do? He manages. Not like Ike Marcus. Ike Marcus had what the Lower East Side wanted: he was young, good-looking, people liked him. Ask him what he did, and he wouldn't say "tend bar". He was going places, and he was going to live forever - until two street kids stepped up to him and Eric on Eldridge Street one night and pulled a gun. Ike's last words were "Not tonight, my man".
At least, that's Eric's version.

New York City 3D
Great story of New York City, without idealism. No glamour, but the diversity of the city with all its layers and ethnicities. One has the feeling of being in the middle of the action, certainly due to Richard Price's experience as a screenwriter. The story is brilliantly read by Bobby Cannavale. I'm a regular listener to audio books, and this is definitely one of the best performances I've heard so far.
