#169: Local 169

Flatiron District, NYC

Home to the Local 169 Amalgamated Clothing & Textiles Workers Union. I often see clusters of disgruntled boots-and-jeans-clad union workers gathered on the sidewalk outside, not to be confused with the disgruntled boots-and-jeans-clad workers from the Guitar Center next door, who aren't so much into the camraderie thing. Plus, at least the union guys get paid for their cigarette breaks, unlike their downtrodden, Ramones-listening counterparts. Go union!
