Time Out New York: Shoe Repair

I'm just reading in this week's Time Out New York magazine about an amazing shoe repair shop on 8th Ave. and 23rd St. called Arty's Shoe Repair. I don't usually write about stores I haven't been to, but this article was too funny and now I feel like I have to go check it out. My favorite line is:

"...a customer who was into S&M asked Arty to modify a white-leather straightjacket by creating flaps that would expose his chest, 'He wanted to be whipped while he struggled in the jacket...'"
This guy must be good.
See page 13 of the December 14-27 issue for the whole story.
