Squeegee Men Return To New York City

Photographed on the corner of Varick and Watts Streets last night, Maurice was happily washing the windshields of commuters heading into the Holland Tunnel, singing along to the music playing in his headphones while his wife sat nearby.

Are squeegee men making a return to New York City? They were last seen on the corner of Bleecker and Bowery by EV Grieve in June. Before that, they were last seen in 1995.
