I hate Seventh Avenue, and my camera barely ever comes out of my bag when I'm there.  Today though, I got talking to Matthew, who has a sidewalk table of second hand books around Carroll.  It seems like a pretty quiet business, and a lot of the time Matthew is more wrapped up in listening to his sound system, playing soul, disco, and a lot of Michael Jackson.  Sometimes I've seen him there late in the evening, on an almost empty avenue, stooped down with eyes closed and head shaking to the music.  We talked for a bit today & when he caught on to the English accent we got to talking in pathetic versions of Cockney.  It was fun. If you're around there, go buy a book.

He looks like a great guy! And from his musical tastes, I wonder if he's related to the Chillmaster!
