9th avenue & 14th street

11:21 a.m. on Wednesday, December 4

What are you doing today?

I’m selling Christmas trees on 14th street & 9th avenue. Usually I’m here all day. The shifts run 12 or 11 hours. We have another stand over in Brooklyn. They have two shifts a day. One during the day and one at night.

What's your favorite part of the day?

Getting here is the easiest, you’re still fresh. By the end of the day, you’re cold and miserable.

What are you doing tomorrow?

Tomorrow I’ll be back here. Same thing.
