Shoe shine men Marguerite Rivas sipoet marguer161@aol.com If you haven't seen the Advance today check out the silive website to see the story on the shoe shine men. Today was their last day on the ferry. I will miss those ubiquitous fixtures. A friend of mine who is a doctoral student in communications at Rutgers did a study of the shoe shine men and how they engage people. She followed them around with a video camera and interviewed them. She has presented the paper at academic conferences and it is always a crowd pleaser.
