  • A lovely and quiet place in the lower part of Manhattan, great amount of books you can buy and they even sell signed ones. Also you can choose staff's favourite ones. Simply a beautiful way how to spend some money on books.
  • A book lovers paradise. I went here during my holiday to NYC. I could have spent the whole holiday looking through every book. Loses a star as the staff weren't very welcoming and kept their heads down without making eye contact, even when I was buying my books! Shame really, as there is nothing better than talking to someone who loves books as much as you in a bookshop and feeling the love/energy from another book enthusiast. Also, they missed out on recommending books and making an extra sale, something I did when working as a bookseller myself. Maybe they feel they don't need to bother.
