Why risk dirtying your computer when someone else's screen will do? I spent a week trying to figure it all out.
Who the hell uses these things in 2016? I never saw more than one person in a store at a time.
What's to be ashamed of? Underneath the Gowanus Expressway, in an area generously included in Sunset Park but really not much more than a detritus-strewn, completely forgotten, and rarely traversed stretch of 3rd Avenue, sit a curious collection of shops, glass windows and brick walls routinely rattled as 18-wheelers hurtle by just 10 feet above.
The only person who was embarrassed was me.
And why did they all wind up so close together? Still, I have no clue how they make rent.
At almost every shop, the people I spoke to said they averaged fewer than five paying customers a day.
