Bank of America, Broadway and Cedar St. Manhattan
Today I visited Bank of America in Long Island City. The Office was not very crowded and I think the employees did not realize that I was protesting. Some people read just the top of my poster and this was sufficient to understand the reason for my protest. Again, I found a person who expressed his distaste for the Bank. I had the opportunity to talk to a young Hispanic man. It was a pleasure to meet him. He took pictures of me.
My health allowed me to protest couple hours. I got the symptoms of a cold: headache, running nose, coughing and sore throat.
Today I visited a Bank of America located in Astoria. The Steinway Street is well crowded but the Bank not much. Customers who I most observed were those using the ATM. The Bank's offices are inside of the building and the employees seem to be hidden by the distance between the street and their workstations. I had the impression that no one from the bank noticed I was there. The only employee that I saw was a young woman who closed the door at the end of the day.
Every time I protest I get a commitment with the people that want to see me again to buy the book. Today for the first time I worked a weekend. I went to a very crowded area. I met people advertising with great sense of humor. I enjoyed hearing an old lady distributing publicly with funny words. She made laughing everyone who passed by us. I could not avoid being part of her show. She was promoting a Dental office and at the same time she was offering an electric brush for those who had no teeth.
