My favorite part of this story was sitting down with writer Patrice Evans. He’s a born and raised New Yorker, and I think that his outlook on segregation is a fascinating one. I’ve always had such a knee-jerk liberal reaction when it comes to the notion (and/or reality of) segregation, and I think his thoughts on the matter shed a fascinating perspective on what’s happening in the city.
When he brought us into his home for the interview, we (well, I) had a small fiasco with his bathroom toilet. He remained calm and collected as we plunged away. The irony with the toilet debacle was that directly after interviewing Patrice, my videographer and I went to Tribeca to do a story on the commode. Yes, an entire episode dedicated to the toilet. Stay tuned…. it’s coming up on tomorrow’s IntoTheBox!
