Icons we mourn: Joe Ades

Joe Ades sold vegetable peelers, and spent many a weekend peeling carrots in Union Square. He will be missed. If you're in the area Saturday, take a moment.
"We will gather at the statue on the south side of Union Square park on Saturday, February 7th, at 1 p.m; and invite everyone to bring memories, anecdotes, and of course, a peeler and carrots or potatoes. As we join together to peel, we will create a temporary vegetable memorial that will incorporate stories and photos that the community brings to share."




  • I read about this in the Times the other day and had been going to post! I had just seen him way uptown not long ago and it really stuck with me because I didn't know he did that location. He was quite amazing!
