Native New Yorker Anthony Pisano, has lived in Manhattan's East Village for over thirty years in an antique shop where nothing is for sale. Attracting people from all over the world, he invites them to step inside, play piano, and satisfy their curiosity. None of these items are for sale, but if he senses something inside you, he graciously gives an item away. Always standing outside talking to the locals, Anthony has the tendency to reflect on life and act as a father-figure to those who are less experienced. A true altruist whose passion for people and antiques has rendered him an East Village icon.
