Shining citizens on Avenue A

“Flashlights for $3!” Audrey and Alex were making their sales pitch to the occasional cyclist and pedestrian on Tuesday evening that passed by the corner of Avenue A and 10th St. A flower artist, Audrey had 30 mini-flashlights left over from a project she had done in which the lights were supposed to illuminate bouquets. “I’m a bit obsessed with space, so I wanted to get rid of these as soon as possible, and also help people out – or help people out, and get rid of these as soon as possible,” explained Alex, an Alzheimer’s researcher. They had sold about 20 of them in just 45 minutes, and were planning to go home and have a glass of wine.
