Meet Anthony Pisano and His East Village Apartment Full of Random Stuff

By

Anthony Pisano is a sweet old man who sits on the sidewalk and invites passersby to browse the contents of his East Village home, which is filled with a wild assortment of antiques, photographs, clocks, figurines, jewelry, and other random curiosities. While nothing is for sale, the Times reported in 2010 that Pisano "estimates he gives away 10 to 12 trinkets every day." In this documentary short, Pisano explains why he does it. "Life is, you talk with people," he says.
