Slice, East Tremont, Bronx by Chris Arnade | Slice, 40, has been keeping pigeons since he was thirteen ... he was sentenced to fourteen and a half years in jail. After being released he met his wife ... Now he is "locked down by my wife and birds. Both of them keep me out of trouble. When I am up here on the roof, I am in another world. I can leave all the past behind. All that below us, that's gone."
