NYC High“: A portrait series and daily feature in which we introduce you to one New York City council member per day, as drawn by Lauri Apple, until Election Day 2010 (Nov. 2).

Name: Vincent J. Gentile (D)
District 43: Brooklyn

Member: since 2003

-As state senator, he wanted to remove the tax on clothes and shoes.
-Calls New York’s parking culture “aggressive and unfair.
-Stars as a doctor in “Bay Rizz: The Rescue,” which makes no sense to us but does also feature Pharrell Williams, somehow.
