WILLIAMSBURG, New York — Justin Sight is legally blind.

But the 25-year-old magician from New York is using that as his advantage.

PIX11 reports that a few days a week, Sight heads to the New York City subway where he performs — mostly card tricks — enchanting crowds for hours.

Sight, whose real name is Adam Jaslikowski, was diagnosed with Stargardt’s disease when he was 10.

“It really wasn’t one of those things that I was down about,” he told PIX11. “I always had the sense that it’s just one of those things that makes me unique and that it’s something you have to use to your advantage.”

A subway rider recently posted a video of Sight on YouTube, and it’s gone viral.

Besides performing in the subway, Sight also books gigs at corporate parties and has performed for the Milwaukee Brewers.
