Walter, in his shop at 240 West 10th Street
Walter’s Antique Clock & Watch Repair has been located at 240 West 10th Street for as long as I can remember. It’s a tiny shop, filled from floor to ceiling with all things ticking. The proprietor, Walter Dikarev, came to the U.S. from Russia in 1989, and has been a real part of this West Village neighborhood for years. We bumped into Walter on the subway today, and he gave us the sad news that he will not be renewing his October lease.
Below is a link from when Walter’s Antique Clock & Watch Repair Shop was the Greenwich Village Society of Historic Preservation’s ‘Business of the Month’ just this past March.
