“I don’t plan on going no place.”

Jerry lives in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, and he owns a pet store and keeps a pigeon coop on his roof.

This charming episode of NYChapters (a short documentary series celebrating the lives of individual New Yorkers) profiles Jerry and his philosophies about life and his neighborhood. The series was created by Alexander Hankoff and edited by Morgan Mitchell, and more information can be found on the series' website, Twitter, and Instagram.
