On most days, Anthony Pisano sits outside of what appears to be a quirky store window display, complete with a neon sign that reads, “It’s time on 7th.” Music (usually Frank Sinatra) pours out of industrial-sized speakers onto the sidewalk on Seventh Street near First Avenue; Mr. Pisano chats with passers-by, urging them to go inside and “satisfy their curiosity.”

Considering the cases of old watches and vast array of other miscellaneous collectibles that are found inside, most visitors assume that they are entering an antique shop or gallery. But it’s not a store and nothing is for sale. The narrow, crowded space has been Mr. Pisano’s apartment for than 32 years.
