VIDEO: A Cretan shoe craftsman with… guts, in New York

His name is Minas Polyhronakis and he comes from the village of Vori, Heraklion.

He went to the USA in 1969, with only… 13 dollars in his pocket, but he managed to make one of the most famous shoe repair store in New York.

His photo is placed in all metro stations of New York, as an example of… “a man with guts”.
