This is the corner of Broadway and Canal Street, home to the most aggressive and problematic counterfeit sellers in all of NYC. Canal Street used to be lined with them, and though their numbers have dwindled over the years, their aggressiveness has not. Sometimes just walking through here with a camera will make these people scream at you and try to intimidate you. It's not fun. Casey has a video in his archive where he encounters one of these guys threatening to smash his camera. I imagine this is why Casey went back with a 360-degree camera.
On this YouTube video, you can drag the video and see all around Casey as he films two friends trying to buy counterfeit bags. He still gets hassled by the guys selling on the street. A pretty cool show of what YouTube can now do.
