Best Comprehensive Street-Stand CD Seller (2008)

Poor Richard's

Sure, dirt-cheap discs with badly copied covers spread out on a blanket have a certain charm. But sidewalk CD shopping needn't be all copyright infringement and single-genre selection. At press time, POOR RICHARD'S could be found outside Tom's Diner, a couple blocks away from the (gulp) newish Kim's Mediapolis—unless they've moved their truckload of deals on diverse stock (world, jazz, rap, rock, and lots of reggae) to where Harlem residents can still stroll by and be rung and talked up by Richard himself.
