Check The New York Daily News tomorrow or early this week for an article about Henry Hill making a guest appearance at Theatre 80. Clayton Patterson showed up and The NYDaily News needed a photographer so hopefully Clayton's photo will run with the article which should be a lot of fun!
Above see Henry Hill getting a pair of cement shoes!
Actually Lorcan Otway the proprietor of Theatre 80 came up with the idea to get Henry Hill's foot prints and his signature in cement. I am sure Hill has many other fans that would like the idea but are not Quakers like Otway!
I have to say that Henry really was very nice but I had to reprimand him for using too much white in his paintings. He stated he is not an artist. I said I know. He paintings go for 50 dollars and they sell.
He has fans and Scorese's film Goodfellas is a masterpiece. Of course the real live harsh realities of his story is beyond most people's scope and disturbing yet perfect for the museum of the American Gangster at 80 St. Marks Place here in NYC.
There was a big enthusiastic turn out to meet Henry Hill, get autographs and watch Goodfellas at Theatre 80 tonight!
The Museum of The American Gangster museum has moved upstairs from Theatre 80 but still connected literally and with amazing new items; a must to visit while in NYC or pretending you are a tourist!
I gather this Cadillac made an appearance in Goodfellas!
