This man is extraordinary and a true New Yorker.

From Yahoo News: For 30 years, sanitation worker Nelson Molina kept New York clean — and in the process found beauty in other people’s garbage, rescuing enough condemned items to fill a warehouse. On the second floor of a sanitation truck depot in East Harlem, he has amassed an astonishing collection of thousands of objects once chucked in the bin but now lovingly cleaned and restored. There are dozens of photos and pictures, dated portraits of unknown people perhaps thrown out because of limited space in cramped New York apartments.
