Product Guide


  • Books


This venue is closed.

Think the Strand, but friendlier and in Brooklyn. The stock is about 85 percent used books, mostly from the neighborhood (Paul Auster donates boxes once in a while), and includes a lot of newer review copies. There’s not much rare stuff, this isn’t a coffee house, and seating is limited, but if you want a Tom Clancy or any mass-market mystery it is usually just a few bucks. Children's books make up about a third of the store's stock, most of them like-new review copies.


Check out the cheap bin in the front of the store. Used paperbacks and hardcovers are a mere $1-$3.
