I remember that I was in the shoe repair store on Bleecker between Broadway and Lafayette and there was a small TV mounted near the ceiling. As I either dropping off or picking up my shoes, there I saw the crash. The owner and I did not know what we looked at. It soon became clear. I think of the Challenger explosion everytime I pass that store.
