This is Cody. I saw him sitting in his chair on Fulton Street in Brooklyn, and I couldn’t just keep walking — I had to ask him for a photo. Cody tells me that he’s the “sheriff” of the area, and he has sizable gold rings from his years with the police to prove it (see picture). Cody is the first man I’ve seen in New York wearing cowboy boots and a real cowboy hat — and a red tie to top it off. Plus, he was just as curious about North Dakota as I was about him.
