Corner 28 is no longer on the corner. The restaurant best-known for one-dollar Peking duck buns, sold from a streetside window, has moved a few doors away to a midblock location. The fellow shown here, standing beside the old, plywooded address, was steering customers to the new location with a placard and with an electronic assist: a small loudspeaker that played the restaurant's sales pitch in Mandarin. It may be lo-fi, but it saves a lot of lung power.
For a similar sales pitch delivered in both English and Spanish, see Merry Land.
