Day 20

Boot scraper!

January 19th, 2012

Dating back to the days when horses filled the streets of the city, boot scrapers were a common tool used to clean off the bottoms of one's shoes before entering a house. There are many remaining in NYC, but it's rare to find one out here in Greenpoint.

    I love these signs of things past. Saw many of them in Boston, Beacon Hill neighborhood.
