Email a Friend

Short Wave Rookies Ailyn Perez, Kedwein Valdez and Lewis Escano had only six weeks to find a story on Roosevelt Island and produce an audio slideshow. They heard rumors about one of Roosevelt Island's known characters: Noel the Fisherman. They searched for him, wandering up and down Roosevelt Island's Main Street, only to realize that the infamous Noel wasn't the only character out there. Although they weren't able to find Noel on Roosevelt Island before their deadline, they were able to talk to him on the phone. Listen here to a clip from their conversation.
