A moment with Manny today

Multiple readers/residents asked about Manny the Peddler today... overnight, someone ransacked his wares here along Avenue A between Second Street and Third Street ... word is some of the items turned up for sale along the ramshackle flea market on 14th Street near First Avenue.

In any event, Manny is OK... and he could use some folding tables if anyone has a one to spare.

Manny, aka Emmanuel Howard, has been selling second-hand items here for more than 40 years.

Thank you to @brainboulos for the photo today...

Sorry this happened to Manny. I thought they'd shut down that "market" on 14th St., but I guess not.

Ah that sucks. I love him. Gave him a cool antique pair of binoculars to sell last week. I was like these are neat you can definitely sell them! He said " sell them? what? I love these I am going to keep them and just spy on everyone!"

Manny's amazing. I'm sure the neighborhood will help out.
