  • Good little bookshop. I went in at 11:30am and it was quite. There is a small area to sit down and browse. The books are new and used which I personally like and the books are all reasonably priced. The shelves go up high so they have ladders to reach books. I love the mellow environment. The staff is also helpful but not attentive which is great. I don't like people following me around , it's uncomfortable. They also have a sale area which is cool.
  • Oh my, this is one of those bookstores you think only exists in literature,; floor to ceiling well organized shelves. I walked in wanting new series. Steve asked what authors and time periods I like, walked to the shelves, picked up four authors, invited me to curl up and peruse them. I am now immersed. This is one of my new NYC highlights!
