“I’m Ken, a Vietnam veteran with a license to sell merchandise in New York City. I love my job even if things are a little bit difficult because we often have to contend with the police, other vendors, and the weather.
During the day I work on 5th Avenue and 58th Street where I sell mainly glasses; during the night I work on 47th Street and Times Square, where I sell mainly hoodies and t-shirts.
It’s a pleasure to work in the open air because I always meet new people: those who make your job fun, and those who don’t, and ask you for money off. My answer is: what have you done for me lately?
I’ve been a salesman since I was a child and lived in Westchester, near NYC, among fields and forests”.
