The Life of a Superhero
Pete’s Candy Store (709 Lorimer St., Brooklyn)
Superheroes are on the rise. A real-life rash of caped crusaders had of late been seizing headlines from coast to coast with random acts of kindness. “MeterMan” works to charge expired parking meters just ahead of the predation of the meter maid in his native Los Angeles, while “Lucas Jones” patrols the mean streets of Seattle on weekend nights, helping to abate alcohol-fueled aggression. Join Brooklyn’s own “Life,” founder of SuperHeroes Anonymous, for a look at the world of superhero-dom.
LIFE (Chaim Lazaros) tirelessly and selflessly does the work of a superhero on behalf of Manhattan’s homeless population. Minimally costumed in a mask and tie-and-jacket, he sets out every day with a backpack brimming with toothbrushes, lotions, soaps, even candy bars, delivering the smaller necessities of a life lived on the streets in a large metropolis.
