Photo of the day: “THIS TIME OF YEAR THE CRAZIES COME OUT”

POLICE OFFICER FERNANDEZ

“THIS TIME OF YEAR THE CRAZIES COME OUT”: This is officer Fernandez who I met in Times Square, he has been on the Times Square force over fifteen years.

Me: “Aren’t you cold?”
Officer: “Naw, I’m wearing my bullet proof vest.”
Me: “Oh I see. May I take your picture?”
Officer Fernandez very proudly stood tall and struck a pose.
Officer: “Yeah sure, but make it quick, this time of the year the crazies come out.”
Me: “Christmastime and the cold, really?”
Officer: “Yeah, it’s those darn office holiday parties.”
