This guy REALLY lives off the grid

This post was written by guest blogger Andy Fine.

Cadillac Man, a homeless Queens resident, just got a book deal. Given the following I’m just happy the guy lived long enough to actually write something:

“I have lived homeless in Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Bronx, and Queens, all the boroughs of New York City save Staten Island,” Cadillac wrote. “I have been urinated on because some people find that amusing and I’ve been shot at for the same reason, I have been given food mixed with bleach and food with scouring powder as garnish, I have fought dozens of fights using fists, feet, knees, elbows, blackjacks, ice picks, tire irons, chains, pipes, bricks, cans of soda, rocks, M-80 explosives, garbage cans, and even other people as weapons, never guns.”

Good thing he stayed out of Staten Island, eh?
