AUGUST 23, 2012, 1:48 P.M., SIG SAMUEL’S DRY CLEANING CO. ON MONROE AVENUE: An employee grabs a hanger for a crisply pressed shirt. This place was a dream to photograph.

Everyone at the establishment seemed happy to be there, with some loyally working at the family-owned business for more than 20 years.
