Prince again: Hunts Point, Bronx
Prince is one of the first addicts I encountered in Hunts Point. I had lost touch with him, but found him on his old street, living in a makeshift shelter (behind him in photo) with Mary Alice.
Prince, soft spoken and measured, told of his recent stint in Rikers, having been “stopped and frisked” by the police, who found drug paraphernalia on him. Mary Alice, his “sister”, said, “Prince is all I have out here. He is my brother. He is the only person who cares about me, who helps me, who buys me food, who deals with my mess when I get all drug sick.”
They are hoping to enter a rehab program together.+
