Food Delivery for Clayton and Jim During COVID-19 Shutdown

Posted on: April 9th, 2020 at 5:07 am by

New York is ramping up for some tough weeks of battling Covid-19, but one thing the virus can’t do is break the spirit of its inhabitants. Neighbors are looking out for each other.

The Village Sun previously reported that filmmakers Jeff Brenner and Adam Juegos spent March 22 hustling around the city to buy groceries and other supplies for two pillars of the Lower East Side community – Jim Power (aka “The Mosaic Man”) and documentarian Clayton Patterson, both of whom are in the high risk demographic for the virus. In so doing, Brenner and Juegos created a mini documentary about their food delivery mission during the initial stages of the outbreak.

The film runs just shy of eight minutes, and both Patterson and Power are featured. They’re also working on a  documentary on Power, the creator of the “Mosaic Trail” decorated street lampposts found throughout the East Village.
