Gowanus Lounge Photo Du Jour: Sharpening Knives in Fort Greene

If you live in Brooklyn, chances are that at some point you have seen the "Original Mike's" grinding truck. Time was, a lot of trucks that did grinding and sharpening were on the street, with their bells ringing to get everyone's attention. Now, there aren't so many of them. We caught up with "Original Mike's" in Fort Greene where the sparks flying from the grinder caught our attention, not to mention the guy running down the street wielding a humongous knife. In one context, cause for significant alarm. But in this case, just a person who wanted to sharpen his knife. Everything, after all, depends on the context.
