Antique Footwear!

If you haven't seen it already, check out this trove of old rubber boots found in the Mark Miller gallery space across the street from the Museum.

The video and photos we took are posted on the Bowery Boogie blog.

Here's a little video of the guy who was doing excavation work in the basement taking a giant lump of fused rubber boots to the dumpster.

Here are some of the photos along with some info about the shoes from Derya, our collections manager.

Boy, do we wish these shoes were from 97 Orchard Street! They would be a great find for our new storefronts exhibit.
