William

is Jerry still there?

If it's the same guy as in the photo below, I knew him in the early 80s when he worked at a small store at 108th and Broadway. He was a friendly guy and all of us kids knew him well, He made the store and gave life and consistency to that corner.

We all thought he was the owner and used to call the place, "Jerry's." When he left, none of us knew why. We thought he had hired help and would soon return. Unfortunately he never did.

I have a high-res scan of the attached photo that I'd love to have printed and given to him.

For those of you who noticed Jerry hasn't been at his stand much, he's been sick and is healing up now and should be back in business today.

What's also great is not only NY 1 News, but NBC news is covering this story. That's huge for a story like this...which is worthy but doesn't often get mainstream coverage.

On the heals of a rally and prayers from the "Reverend Billy and The Stop Shopping Choir" Sunday afternoon, the beleaguered newsstand operator Jerry Delakas may get good news from the mayor's office today. After many rallies by the East Village community, Jerry may work at his newsstand again.

Another Test for the New Mayor: Opening Jerry Delakas' Newsstand

A new Huffington Post article on Jerry's plight.
Awaiting news from the court house.

With so many people in line to meet New York City's new mayor on Sunday, there was little time but for a brief handshake and a smile for the photographer. But Kelly King, an East Village artist, and Jerry Delakas, a newsstand operator, wanted more than a handshake.

Jerry met new mayor Bill De Blasio who said of Jerry's Newsstand to Jerry "Great place!" Paraphrasing the rest: after being told of lock out, De Blasio said he 'is aware, there is a great injustice, and then instructed his aids to 'get on it immediately.' (Sorry for paraphrasing we were very tired). Jerry then spoke to aid who took from him the specifics of the case.
