Change Your Scent


I love the smell of the stacks at the Strand bookstore. I’ve noticed this odor a little less since they’ve renovated. Maybe a few years’ worth of dust needs to settle, and it will be back to smelling the way it used to. And once a year in Williamsburg, for a few brief days when the linden trees on Bedford Avenue bloom, it’s like a shower of fireworks over the whole neighborhood.
