Shoe shine men Diane J DJ Lost I haven't checked the Advance web site yet, but why are they getting rid of the shoe shine men?

Wow, every time I used to ride the ferry, there was this one old man who used to call out "SHINE. SHINE" in this heavy accent. It seemed so expected after a while that he would always be there.
Last year when I took my husband to NY for the first time, we rode the ferry. I kind of expected to see the old shoe shine man.

Kind of sad really.
