Gershow Recycling was featured in an episode of National Geographic Channel’s "American Gypsies,” which aired on August 14.

In the episode "Love For Sale,” Bobby looked for new business opportunities outside of the traditional family-run psychic healing shops. He noticed that his son-in-law John is doing very well in the scrapping business, so he decided to learn more from John. They collected some scrap metal and brought it to Gershow’s facility in Brooklyn to get money for it.

They met Gershow Manager Jonathan Abrams, who weighed the brass scrap for them. Weighing the metal at 248 pounds with the current market value at $2 per pound, they’ve earned $496. When John saw Bobby holding that money, he could tell that Bobby will definitely enjoy being in the scrapping business.

"American Gypsies” can be seen on Channel 162 (Cablevision), Channel 121 (FiOS), Channel 621 (FiOS HD), Channel 276 (DirecTV), Channel 186 (DISH Network), Channel 65 (Time Warner Cable) and Channel 765 (Time Warner Cable HD). To view the segment, click here.
