On 125th Street, between 2nd and 3rd Avenues, is an architectural salvage firm that reclaims and restores used building materials, such as the vintage industrial sinks shown here. Having worked with paint stripper myself on many occasions, I was a bit surprised to see the worker wearing shorts and foregoing gloves, safety glasses, and a respirator, let alone doing all this work on a public sidewalk, but that's New York, eh?
