Julian Casablancas

The lead singer of The Strokes and solo artist himself! I know you might be thinking, "But isn't that Beck?" I thought the same thing..but it is Julian Casablancas. Whoa!

Bernie Madoff

Yes, this is really him.

Andrew Jackson

The 7th President of the United States of America, riding the 6 train uptown. Hey Andrew, don't you have a country to lead? Hahah..no, just kidding - he is dead.

Steve Buscemi

I know what you're thinking: "This doesn't look like Steve Buscemi. Are you right? A little. But does it look like him? A little.

It did more in person, anyways...

Christopher Meloni

Wow..Mr. Paparazzi almost got caught on this one! Actually, I'm pretty sure Meloni was aware he was being photographed..but he's probably used to it! He's on Law & Order all the time. Golly..well, at least he has a puffy black coat on!

Nelson Mandela

The 1st president of South Africa..walking across 2nd Avenue in Manhattan!

Rachel Dratch

A special thanks to Ms. Adele Meyer for taking this photo! She caught this rare but quite ornate painting of Rachel Dratch at the Brooklyn Museum.

Chad Kroeger

This one was tough to shoot, mostly because the people whom I was with stopped and stared at him as I snapped a photo..anyways, I got "The Kroeg" as he was sitting down to a late night bite to eat with a lady friend. Ooooh, gossip alert!!! :P

Chris Bosh

We knew he could dunk..but who knew he could perform stand up comedy!

Wilmer Valderrama

You may know him as "Fez"..but here he is at 4am on the subway in NYC, listening to some music!

Peter Parker

Oooh - "Spidey" senses...need to hold a chaperone's hand?!

Randy Jackson

Hey Dog! What are you doing on the M15 bus going downtown!? Where is SIMON!? :)

Brian Posehn

The lighting was rather dim - I wish I could've snapped a better shot - but this is the stand up comedian Brian Posehn as he entered the restaurant Ruby Foo's in Times Square.

Kevin from The Office (With A Toupee)

He wore a toupee in the Jim/Pam wedding episode. Here he was at Six Flags..waiting to ride the Batman!

Wicked Witch of the East (Red Sock Edition)

A new take on the WWOTE...waiting in line at Six Flags to ride El Toro!

Mason Gamble (From the 1993 Dennis The Menace movie)

This child actor, seen here, made a name for himself in 1993 while portraying Dennis The Mennis in a hit movie featuring the late Walter Matthau. It appears he is still up to his usual shenanigans while riding the 4/5 train downtown!

Ben Shalom Bernanke

Yes, Ben Shalom Bernanke is his full name. Don't believe me? Look it up on Wikipedia. Anyways, this is the "Fed Head" himeself, just chillin' and checkin' out some new books at Barnes & Noble. What are you reading, Ben? A book on finance or the economy!? LOL..probably..

Liza Minelli

Though I mainly know her from her role as Lucille Ostero on Arrested Development, I know she has a long history in theater or broadway or something in New York City..anyways, here she is outside of a grocery store! Hey Liza, whatcha doin'? Ha ha ha.

Steven Wright

Here is Steven Wright, selling fruit. If you are not sure who he is, here is a picture. Though this could also be a clown without his (or her) makeup on, I think it is Steven Wright. I am about 67% sure that this is actually Mr. Wright.

Bradley Whitford (aka Eric Gordon from Billy Madison)

In what might end up being the least accurate celebrity sighting in this blog, here is Bradley Whitford - star of the West Wing and the antagonist in the 1995 hit comedy movie Billy Madison!

Tommy Chong

Tommy Chong, chillin' on his front steps in the Upper East Side. Hey, I bet that's not just tobacco in that cigarette joint! LOL

Beyonce (Knowles)

The singer who is married to Jay-Z.

Aziz Ansari

Aziz, from Human Giant and the recent movie Funny People, just takin' a stroll through Brooklyn!

John Malkovich/Woody Harrelson

I could not make out which quirky actor it was..so I'll leave it up to you, the viewer, to decide!

Ozzie Ozbourne (ft. Air Bud)

Ozzie "Prince Of Darkness" Osbourne was sitting outside on a sunny day in Manhattan with his golden retriever. Man, that's crazy!..train...(LOL)

Omar Minaya

The Mets GM..probably going to visit one of his players..at the hospital or physical therapist! They are all injured!

Dave Matthews (Aerial Photograph)

Dave Matthews of the Dave Matthews Band at Bryant Park in New York.

Roger Clemens

The Rocket. (This is actually him at a Tri-City ValleyCats game in '06)

Charles Darwin

The famous naturalist and philosopher, hanging out at a Panera Bread in San Antonio, TX. I bet he got a healthy sandwich there..survival of the fittest! :) !!! (Photo courtesy of Mr. Mark Russell)

Ron Jeremy/Stan Van Gundy

Whichever individual it is - Ron or Stan, if there is a difference between them anyways - he seems to be enjoying a nice read! Maybe he's reading up on basketball strategies..or maybe about something naughty! LOL. (Photo courtesy of Mr. Patrick Nguyen)

Dr. Andrew Weil

He even has his own homepage. This pioneer of popularizing integrative medicine was just ridin' the subway. Here's a pic of him if you don't believe me: Dr. Andrew Weil, M.D.

Mother Teresa

A.K.A. Agnesë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu (her birthname, duh!), just walkin' down 2nd Avenue in Manhattan. Looks like she's taking a break from traveling to assist and minister to the hungry in Ethiopia, radiation victims at Chernobyl, and earthquake victims in Armenia. Well..I guess I'll let this little break from charitable work slide! Ha ha ha.

Kirsten Dunst

The Spiderman girl herself! Looks like Peter Parker is playing second fiddle to bagels here!

Grandpa from The LeBrons Nike Commercials

If you are not sure to whom I am referring, check out this picture. He is the old man on the right. I saw him making copies at a FedEx Kinkos.

Jerry Garcia

Struttin' his stuff down 41st street. I took this photo right after eating a turkey footlong from Subway.

Charlie Weis

Charlie Weis with his signature high-pants-tucked-around-an-amorphous-waistline. Hey Charlie, I hope that was Diet Coke you just got from that Subway soda fountain!!!


This "Ruff Ryder" was taking a break from barkin' into the mike ("microphone") and eating a cheeseburger cooked medium well in Bryant Park. D-M-X and my dogs bite -- burgers!

Isaac Hayes

Isaac Hayes, strolling through Bryant Park.

I just read on Wikipedia that he allegedly passed away August 10, 2008. This photograph just goes to show how Wikipedia is an unreliable source of information and should not be cited as a source in college research papers.


Yes - the talking pig from the city! Looks like all that fanfare got this little piggy all tuckered out. Oink, oink!

Carmelo Anthony

Carmelo Anthony - one of my favorite basketball players and alumnus of Syracuse University - riding the subway in NYC. I guess it is true what they say about the NBA offseason: It's a good time to ride the trains in New York.

Also, 'Melo appeared a lot more Hispanic in person. Anyways, get ready for the '09'-'10 season, 'Melo!

Martin Van Buren

Martin Van Buren - alive AND mid-bite at an 86th Street Dunkin' Donuts. Notice the burns/mutton chops. America (and a former president!) runs on Dunkin'! Ha ha. Just kidding.

Miss Cleo (off duty)

Telephone psychic Miss Cleo taking a stroll down 1st Avenue on the 4th of July in a pursuit of life, liberty, and...knowing the future!?! ;)

Fantasia (from American Idol)

It is Fantasia Monique Barrino - the winner of the 2004 season of American Idol hosted by Ryan Seacrest.

Rip Van Winkle

Either it's the fictional protagonist from American author Washington Irving's 1819 short story, or it's a dead old man! I hope it's the former, because the latter would be quite unfortunate. Golly. Oh well..wake up, Rip, wake up!

Pete Wentz

Hey Pete - where the heck is Ashley!? I hope you two didn't have a FALLing OUT, BOY! Ha ha ha.

President Obama (Incognito)

Okay, okay - wait just a minute. I know what you're thinking: "That doesn't look like B.O.!" You have a point. But it's because he was trying to mask his identity. The hat pulled down over his face, the dark clothing. I mean, if I were the President of the United States and I was in a bodega just chilling, I'd want to conceal my identity as well.

John McEnroe

Getting a coffee at Starbucks. You can't be serious! (LOL)

Dick Tracy

The more I look at this one, the more I think it might be the "Man In The Yellow Hat" from Curious George books. Not sure.

Bernie from Weekend At Bernie's

From Weekend At Bernie's. He's alive now? What!?

Adrian Peterson

He was talking about adding 10-15 lbs. this offseason. Um..looks like you did the opposite AP..times 100! Wow. Nah, I'm sure he'll be fine for the season
