Artifacts from my home state just keeps popping up everywhere I go in the Big Apple. Here is some guy from Queens rocking the Local slippahs at the Magician Bar on the Lower East Side. After squealing and insisting that he let me photograph his footwear, I had to explain where I was from and why it excited me so. To his credit, he rolled with it. Look at that grin! For all I know, it's the not the strangest request made of him by a stranger in a bar.
I really enjoy finding little reminders of home like this.
