Is that the old guy who usually is in Union Square (in front of Whole Foods)? That guy is pretty cool and draws a crowd. Although.... i dont often see people purchase a peeler from him.
Oh $hit... i just realized he died. That is so sad!!!
He was one of the regulars you would see downtown. Kind of like that crazy George Clinton looking dude that walks around Union Square during the summer.
