Streetside shoe repair

April 27th, 2014

In New York's Chinatowns, it's not unusual to find a shopless cobbler set up on the sidewalk, fixing people's shoes using the limited number of tools he can carry with him. The gentleman above plies his trade beneath a railroad overpass here in Elmhurst; we saw a similar sidewalk scene last year on 8th Avenue in Sunset Park.

    He is still there fixing shoes. I saw him a few days ago while I was out on a walk.
