Jimmy Prince in the Post
a 76-year-old in a tie and an apron with a preturnaturally boyish glow. A platonic version of the old-school shopkeeper who knows everyone's name, he seems constitutionally incapable of completing an interaction without a smile, a quip, a treat for a child or an inquiry after someone's sister.
It's great to see the Post taking the time and space to recognize a classic Coney Island character. The article also describes Prince as, "one of the now-reviving neighborhood's biggest boosters, full of hope for its future." Anyone who has seen the museum that Prince has made of his store window, or heard his encouraging words at this month's Community Information Sessions, knows that this is true.
