SNAPPED! Bookmobile!

Right here in our Fordham community, this car of books is permanently parked. One quirky and quite small in stature gentlemen owns the car and the books it in, and uses the busy street to operate his business. Each morning, he unloads the car and sets up the books on a foldable table (also stored in the car) and at the end of the day packs up all the books into the car again to be stored overnight. This picture was taken at 9 p.m., and it was obvious that he had closed shop for the day. Talk about an independent bookseller! His “shop” is located on Columbus Ave. at 68th St. I can’t imagine the tickets this man must accumulate, but I guess it’s cheaper than paying Upper West Side rent, right?
