Street Vendor....The English Eccentric

This guy sells vegetable slicers on the street in NYC. After listening to his pitch over and over again in about a 10 minute span I believe he started out as a bit of a character but has turned into a full-blown super stylin' eccentric.

I've bought a vegetable slicer from this man. He's been around for years.

i have never looked through the 2005 archives but i am so happy to have found this photo...i lovee this old man. the first time i saw him peeling potatoes in union square, he was in the most charming yellow corduroy suit.

It was startling to see this picture -- he died several months ago, and the NY Times did a write-up of it. It's strange to miss someone you didn't know, but I do.

OMG... that's right. He died. I also loved this guy. I saw him at Union Square the last time and he was a great sales man. This picture will part of a modern NYC legend. One day, many many years from now, everybody that lived in this city during the past 10 years will be talking about the charismatic guy that sold vegetable slicers in NYC and we'll have this great picture to remember him. God be with him.
