Every Person in New York

Artist Jason Polan is obsessed with chronicling things: everything visible to the public at the MoMa, gems and dinosaurs at the American Museum of Natural History, the passage of time. His quest to draw every person in New York takes us on a journey through the city and introduces us to many of its residents -- ordinary urbanites, children, people in fanny packs, and more than a bevvy of the art, film and music world gliterrati in their natural environments. We spend most of our time with Jason at the MoMa, Union Square, commuting around town on the subway, and in SoHo... and at Taco Bell. Boy loves himself a nacho. As of November 30th, a year-and-a-half into his quest, Jason had drawn 8,300 people - one tenth of one percent of his residents. And boy, do they know how to eat.

First up, our main man Mario. Love the Crocs.

Order up: toasted sesame bagel, gaspe salmon, regular cream cheese, wasabi roe. And a side order of the oh-so-delicious Josh Russ Tupper.

Sherlock Holmes here. They're filming "Clearing the Air", a short on SNL, Season 34, Episode 8 (no video available, sorry, but here's the transcript) at Bellavitae Restaurant at 24 Minetta Lane.
