For the past few years, when I hang out Uptown (Harlem, Spanish Harlem, Washington Heights), I’ve been seeing people selling and buying nutcrackers. Everyone up there seems to be in the know and enjoys them.
A few questions..
1. When did people start making them?
2. Wtf is in em?
All my friends from uptown say they are good, but to “be careful cuz people sometimes put shit in em”. WTF??
How’d something that seems so simple and colorful become such a phenomenon?
I’m on the case to find out exactly.
