The Mayor Of Times Square
Meet William "Pee Wee" Scheidt, a gregarious old timer who's full of piss and vinegar in that endearing way which only certain senior citizens can effectively pull off. Scheidt is famous for being a die-hard Yankees fan and the unofficial "Mayor of Times Square." Brooklyn-based comedian and filmmaker Jeff Seal recently followed Scheidt around for a day in Times Square to see how the mayor connects with/breaks the balls of his constituents:
The Chip Shop At Eastwood - Eat
Ok, see if you can follow this: The Chip Shop is located next to coming-soon pub Eastwood, which itself was named because it's located at East Broadway and Clinton, and Clint Eastwood's name is Clinton, and the owner has the same birthday as him.… Beer-battered (the brew's sourced from next-door Malt & Mold), flaky whitefish is done up in the type of "British Style" that doesn't involve a trilby. You can also nab it in a sando on big slices of brioche from Pain D'Avignon, topped with Edinburgh Chippy Sauce (HP & Malt Vinegar). They've got a secret falafel recipe for this bad boy that apparently extends beyond just loading it up with fries. Get yo'self some m-effing homemade s'mores pie from First Prize Pies. Oh, and they have a boombox, plus a cache of '90s CDs that recall a time when all our musicians were dirty and hairy.
