Iggy Pop gleefully showing off his Alphabet City neighborhood in 1993. He really is good ol’ James Osterberg in this video, letting his guard down and revealing old fears of authority to the cameraman (who he is obviously very comfortable with). Not only does he show off the hispanic flavor of the area, but he talks about the Jim Jarmusch film he had worked on, Coffee and Cigarettes with Tom Waits.

“There’s a guy here who took a Swiss girl and made her into soup…  he used to go to that (the 9th St. psychedelic)church. His dad was a butcher.”

-Iggy Pop
