Blast from the past: New York George
Ever see a picture of someone and figure that if you knew them, you'd probably like 'em? I feel that way about this guy.
This is a Sun archive photo from 1995. Here is the caption:
"New York George" Miller, a 68-year-old local character, makes daily rounds visiting bars and businesses and sometimes helps people place bets at various racetracks. George enjoys a beer and his ever-present cigar at Burke's Restaurant, Lombard Street near the Inner Harbor.
I read a fantastic piece about New York George, written by a former coworker, Rob Hiaasen. Yeah, I bet I would have liked George.
