First I've heard of this and I likely wouldn't have, save for you Michael. I will be there! Thank you!

Michael is that a typo? I don’t think they could fit 1000 tables into the theater. Discogs isn’t very forthcoming with info about the record fair. 1000 tables would be on a scale that I don’t think even Austin had in its glory days. 100 makes sense...1000 would be a record.

Yes, my bad. It's 100 tables. Thanks for the catch!

I forgot to say thank you. I wouldn't have known about this if you hadn't mentioned it.

I went to the record fair this morning. I don't think there were one hundred tables but there was a pretty good selection. It was well attended. More people than tables. I bought four records: Thelonious Monk - Brilliant Corners. Original Riverside - $20.
Chico Hamilton - Chic Chic Chico. Original Impulse - $15.
Jimmy Smith/Stanley Turrentine - Prayer Meetin' Blue Note first pressing - $15. Clifford Brown Memorial Album - Blue Note DMM Mono - $12. DMM, I know, not great but I wanted the album. I'm particularly pleased with the Monk purchase. If Discogs does this in NYC again I'd suggest they find a better venue. The theater was dark. I prefer lots of light when searching through boxes. Also, somewhere other than Times Square. There's a reason New Yorkers avoid it.
