Tennis Soles?

The people at this cellular phone store in Queens have an ingenious way of protecting the hardwood floors from scratches. When I walked pass the store, I knew I had to take a photo of it. It's unique and brilliant, isn't it?

Queens is one of five boroughs (counties or parishes)
that make up New York City. The other four boroughs are Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Bronx and Staten Island. Manhattan is undoubtedly the most famous of the five boroughs and is the administrative seat of the city. A common misconception among non-New Yorkers it that Manhattan IS New York City. On the contrary, Manhattan constitutes less than 10% in terms of geography and 20% in terms of population of the city.

Look forward to your pictures. These floor protectors are often seen on walkers that are used by the elderly.

At first I thought they were tennis balls. :| But when I enlarged your photo I could see they are furry. Useful and cute!
