By the way, I highly doubt this fellow lives in New Square. The only people who live there are members of a closed sect of ultra-religious Orthodox Hassidic Jews. None of them have access to the internet, and very few of them drive. For those of you who met him, if he did no look like he just stepped out of the 1700's, he lives in New City not New Square.
