MANHATTAN , NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, April 19, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — A Manhattan, New York City roasted nut street vendor (7th Ave & 53rd) had an emergency matter and left her pushcart vacant. Actor, Jermaine Hopkins of movies, Juice, Strapped, Phat Beach and Lean On Me fame, just so happened to have approached the roasted nut pushcart for peanuts. “I was in New York on Saturday (4/13/24) for Reverend, Al Sharpton’s National Action Network (NAN) convention and to celebrate my longtime friend Prophet Willie Stiggers’ Youth Move Pioneer Honor. I stepped outside during a convention break for some of those New York staple roasted peanuts and realized no one was there. So instinctively, I decide to watch the cart until the person returned,” said Hopkins. “I also really wanted a bag of those roasted peanuts,” he laughs! The woman returned with a gracious big smile, full of gratitude and more than thankful for Hopkins’ help. She offered him complimentary nuts but he insisted to pay and purchased them.
