NYC jeweler embodies the American Dream

Aladj Fallou Mbacke sits at booth 18 of 47 W. 47th St. (Telephone: 917-617-0826) repairing jewelry under a lamp. Customers walk in and happily speak to Mbacke as if they are reuniting with an old friend. He looks away from the scattered rings and stones to exchange smiles and laughs before customers hand over their precious jewels.
