So interesting!! Thank you so much :) Living in new york soon. Might go grab a game with a chess player.....
Excellent interviews. Thanks for sharing.
Great read! I hope you consider doing a follow-up or a second series of interviews. Thanks!
I just love this. Thank you! My brother lives in NYC now and it's such a vibrant place, love seeing it through the eyes of these chess hustlers. It makes me happy this is something that still exists and goes on!
This is so amazing!! Thank you for this! I am dying to lose to one of these guys in chess.
Fantastic interviews, really enjoyed as a chess fan.
Purely delightful. What a humanistic feature, putting rich stories to what otherwise would be our passing set of superficial assumptions of these folks set up in the park. That is the function of storytelling and feature profiling: getting past the surface to actual human beings and their back stories. Bravo.
These are wonderful, Anne. Every time I walked through Washington Park, I wanted to know more about these folks who I saw day-in-day-out. Now you've done it. Congrats and looking forward to reading more. I'm a huge fan of man/woman-on-the-street-interviews!
Excellent interviews. Thanks for sending me here, Albert Chu.
EGGS absolutely kicked my butt when I played him
What about xiang-qi and shogi
Great article. Similar group would play on yonge street in Toronto during the 60’s and 70’s. Really enjoyed watching them.
Just a unique article. Really interesting.
Good article. Hung out with a bunch of these hustlers back in the day. Some of the really good players were crack
I really enjoyed this. Thank you for writing! :)
