Guardian Angels on Avenue A

I was walking up Avenue A this morning, when I espied the familiar red jacket and beret of what I thought was the defunct Guardian Angels. Old-time locals will probably remember them as the vigilante group that formed in the 1970s, when the East Village, and other parts of New York, were dangerous and inhospitable.

Today, it looks like they're going to be part of a documentary!

Film crew and Guardian Angels.

As I was leaving, I saw the man himself: Curtis Sliwa:

Curtis Sliwa, jaywalking.

By "the man", I mean the leader of the group.

Part of the East Village's history… today!
