Bruce's grandfather, an Italian immigrant, opened this printing business in Bushwick over 100 years ago. As I was walking by, my eye was drawn inside by the incredible collection of paper, type pieces, and ancient printing presses.
This is the counterpoint to my walk across the US. Instead of seeing a million places for just a minute each, I'm going to spend a million minutes exploring just one place. By the time I finish walking every block of every street in all five boroughs, I'll have traveled more than 8,000 miles on foot — all within a single city. Details!
Your donations allow me to keep walking full-time. If you think what I'm doing is valuable and you'd like to offer some support, I would be very grateful. On the other hand, if you think I'm a worthless bum, feel free to email me and tell me to get a job, bozo. Both are excellent options!
Awesome! He should donate them to a museum.
I’m first..your not…..
Bruce nice collection. Awesome look at the way we “used” to communicate. No Android martian in this place I bet.
Look at that back wall. I would love to see this place.
That was the first thing I noticed too!! I think that may be tin on the walls! Everything is soooo interesting!!
Wonder if Bruce was a printer’s devil for his Grandfather…my Dad was for his Grandpa.
I love the brand name on the printing press – KLUGE. interesting piece on the company http://www.kluge.biz/index.php?page=a-history-of-innovation. But this is what I was thinking of when I saw the name, http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=kluge. I wonder if they are connected, but it doesn’t appear so. Here is some more. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kludge
