No Your City is an 8-part mini-documentary series that offers a glimpse into the lives of extraordinary New York City street characters. Previous profiles include Ms. Colombia and Qween Amor amongst other well-known street performers.

In this episode, the show profiles Ricky Syers, Washington Square’s marionette puppeteer.

“The marionettes keep everyone around me 8-years old again. I gotta be honest with you, I don’t think I have gone through or will go through a mid-life crisis… Life hasn’t changed for me since I’ve been a kid.” - Ricky Syers
