from the article about timothy caughman, who was murdered last week in manhattan:

“He was an extremely gracious individual and respectful of his neighbors,” Mr. Jorgensen said.

He [Caughman] read avidly, and mainly kept to himself. He was a recycler of redeemables, his currency for his modest wants. His relatives said he viewed this as an entrepreneurial undertaking, a way to keep active and help pay for his room.

He did maintain a social media presence. He had a Twitter account, and in his profile he defined himself as a can and bottle recycler, autograph collector and a good businessman. He said he aspired to visit California.
