Having left Manhattan nearly two years ago, I haven't thought much about Joe Ades, the remarkable peeler salesman in Union Square.
If you never saw him, you missed a true New York treat. The video below helps illustrate, but doesn't necessarily do Joe's routine justice.
I've watched many street performers around the world ... break dancers, mimes [don't get me started], comics, singers, etc. None of them brought it like Joe Ades.
