Made in Brooklyn: The Shoemaker

by

Although I only knew about this series through the final episode, ‘The Shoemaker’, the stories told and illustrated throughout mere minutes of film makes me want to go back and watch the series in its entirety to learn about each of these creators.

The final episode tells the story of shoemaker Frank Catalfumo as he talks about how he got into the business, how the neighbourhood has changed over the past seven decades, and what he’d be doing if he weren’t still mending shoes.

‘Made In Brooklyn’ is a video series about makers, craftspeople, and artisans who are based in the borough; an homage to Brooklyn. The series was created by Dustin Cohen, with endless help from Michael Hurley.
