GEORGE’S BEL AIR by CHRISTOPHER LANGE
George is another one of the Meatpacking District’s characters. Outside the dark playground of the District, he works as one of those guys that puts up billboards all over the city.
He has a classic car collection, and he brings one down to Pastis every weekend. This one in particular used to belong to his father. Sadly, his dad passed away this past summer, so I ended up making a small print of this photograph for him, and brought to him on my way in to Pastis one night in July.
A friendly sort, George is open to talk to just about anyone about just about anything, though his car is usually the subject. It isn’t unusual to see him providing an unofficial…”taxi” service at the end of the night, either.
