This happened on New Year's Eve 1981👉 "Bighead Benny just stood there frozen and speechless for a few more seconds before pushing his way back out of the growing crowd and running up the steep hill that led to our block. Everyone around me was still yelling, some concerned about me, and others pissed off about the traffic jam I had caused. Some were saying that I was thrown the length of a block. I believed it after noticing that I was now in front of the Social Security building on 182nd Street. I stopped looking at them and stared straight ahead. My heart sunk when I spotted my brand-new white-on-burgundy suede Pumas—now stained in oil and grease and whatever else they picked up off of Broadway—scattered beneath some cars. "Not my Pumas. I just got those on Christmas." From the chapter titled "Got It Bad Y'all", from my first memoir.
