About the Author

Matthew Abuelo is a writer, professional blogger and award winning poet best known for his observations on life in modern day New York. Born in Manhasset in 1975 to a father enlisted in the military, he and his family traveled throughout most of his childhood, living in army bases across the United States and Germany. After an early stint as a counselor for special needs children, Mr Abuelo began focusing more attention on his writing, developing his skills beyond poetry, to other genres including fiction and journalism. As an activist he helped organize the StrapHanger's campaign to fight for public transportation in Nassau County in the 1990's, has been involved in various campaigns within the peace movement after the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan and has worked as an affordable housing advocate in New York City. Living in an SRO on the upper west side inspired him to write about his friends and neighbors, the remnants of bohemian New York, struggling to survive in an increasingly hostile and antagonistic world. His previous book The News Factory: Notes from a Dying City was published by Plain View Press in 2012. His two earlier books, Organic Hotels and Last American Roar, are available on lulu.com. A former journalist for the online news site Examiner.com, Mr. Abuelo currently writes for the Times Square Chronicles, a bi-monthly publication based in Hell's Kitchen.
