If the nation were a kindergarten, and cities its pupils, NYC would be the kid that has everything. Everything except good bookstores, that is. My little college town of Berkeley has more decent bookstores in a block than can be found in all five of the city's boroughs, something that never ceases to amaze me. Which is why St. Mark's is such a delight. Open late, with an educated staff and a diverse selection, St. Mark's is one of the few independent bookshops to have survived B&N's plan for world domination. Next time you feel like browsing bookshelves, bypass that monolith with its Starbuck's cafe, and head for St. Mark's. You won't be disappointed.

  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
