MARCO, NYC CHRISTMAS TREE SELLER
ARE YOU IN THE TREE BUSINESS ALL YEAR LONG?
Of course not.
We have been buying Christmas trees from you on this very corner (97th and Broadway) for seven years. when you’re not here, where do you call home?
West Fali, my camper. I take it everywhere I travel – Mexico, Canada, Latin America.
Last December you were singled out by The New York Post as one of the city’s “Hunks to Pine For”. Congratulations. Did this honor impact tree sales or any other aspects of your life?
Definitely! Sales went up 20%! Just kidding. I never tell people about that article.
What brings you joy?
Selling lots of Christmas trees!
Comb or brush?
Do you like your name?
Yes! Very much! It’s like Mario Andretti – very Italian.
Finish this sentence: My age is…………….
too personal to tell.
What’s for dinner tonight?
Whatever my girlfriend wants – sushi, I think.
