When I was in College, I got an internship at the New York City Housing Authority. I was working in the Garden and Greening Program and hired by Rob Bennaton, the happy man in the picture….also the only man in the picture.
When I left, I told my sister, Yunis, about the internship. Yunis applied and was the next person Rob hired. Before she left, she passed on the position to my brother who then passed it on to our youngest sister, April, who now works there. Can you believe, all my younger siblings were also hired by Rob?
That’s why it is important to have a good record where ever you go.
Each summer since 2008, someone in my house was working for Rob or because of Rob. Each summer he shared with us different words of wisdom.
Rob is now leaving the New York City Housing Authority for a bigger and better position in California.
I am very happy for him and wish him and his beautiful family all the best.
Thank you Rob for your constant words of wisdom and for looking out for my family your help towards us will never be forgotten.
Hi y’all doing this is Sam Sam taking over for his sister for tonight. LWB © *;
This is Golden Man. You have the ”Golden Child,” but he is the Golden Man…
About 4 to 5 years ago, someone I knew took a picture with this young man. And coming out of Juniors tonight I seen him once again doing the same thing What a kawinkydink… He is usually around and or between 42 and 34 street downtown Manhattan. (And he talks if you talk to him, not a total mime yet. Also obviously he is around the tourist and crowed areas. He has to make that money like everyone else.) He said the picture that you see above is from when he first started, about the first week to month. That was his spot right at olive garden downtown. As he beg
in to learn about his new trade he began to venture out. People when you see other people trying to make a living with various odd legal and reasonable jobs such as this young man or selling legal goods on the street. Please don’t look down on them because you don’t know what you may have to do when it is all said and done. You may not have money or food for them if they are asking for that, but a “how your doing”, “nice work”, or “good job” goes a long way even on a bad day.
But that’s my bit for today have a good one and as a lady I know says: ”Stay bless ladies and gentlemen.”
