JCPMichael CollaroneSPOTLIGHT: FLORATECH
“I grew up with so many Michaels,” says Michael Collarone, explaining how he came to be known as Mikey Flowers. “Mikey Navy wanted to be in the Navy. Mikey Fires wanted to be a firefighter. I was the Mikey who knew flowers.” His floral design firm, Floratech, has been in Tribeca for three decades, and he has the stories to prove it. (Photography by Claudine Williams.)
