Hot Time in the City, Part Three

The burning trash cans story gets even weirder!

The police search for a middle-aged woman suspected of starting 15 trash-can fires in Midtown on Monday ended Tuesday with the arrest of a man, not a woman, who has been living on the streets outside Pennsylvania Station, the Fire Department said.

Mr. [Armando] Calderon, who has an arrest record that stretches back 30 years, was charged with reckless endangerment, criminal mischief and arson, the authorities said. A photograph of Mr. Calderon showed a clean-shaven, long-haired man wearing at least three layers of clothing, which perhaps accounts for the mistake in his gender among the witnesses.

Now I'm wondering if this is the guy I saw outside the New York Public Library on 42nd and 5th at around 3:00 PM that day.
