There seems to always be some kind of major building renovation in progress in Lower Manhattan, where today’s sweat shop is being gutted and turned into tomorrow’s luxury condo. The result is that all sorts of junk from the turned-out or torned-down structures end up on the street like these burned-out clothes dryers we came across on Delancey St. near the intersection with Chrystie St. But even the most beat-up junk has a use for someone. Discarded objects and furniture quickly disappear from the streets.
