Best of Brooklyn: Stained Glass Store

Posted: Updated:
PARK SLOPE -

A Brooklyn man has been restoring glass inside his shop for over 40 years.

Peter Romano has been restoring old and neglected stained glass and repurposing them.

"It's very labor intensive," Romano says. "But I just love what I do."

Although he does sell some of the stained glass windows he creates, Ramano says nearly 80 percent of his business comes from repairing neglected stained glass windows.

"I have a lot of friends and relatives asking me when I will retire. I always ask them, why retire when you love what you do?"
