  • This was a good used bookstore with great selection in a very open, airy setting. We were able to sit, enjoy a coffee, and use their wifi in a nice setting. Book were reasonably priced.  more »

  • Still a jewel in NYC. Their events are well organized and so are the books. It's such a pleasant place to spend time, have some tea and entangle yourself with reading pleasure.
  • Free wifi, and awesome vibes for studying & reading. Would not recommend for a chit chat with friends.
  • Books on books on books. I can easily spend a couple hours here thumbing through books
  • Cozy with good seating (and AC) and a cafe. There are cheaply priced books, and all proceeds go to a good cause!
  • A really nice expansive bookstore all for a good cause too! They also host excellent events.
