    Only place in NY you can pick up a book on the history of Cambodia, the latest hot French novel and cool travel guides to Havana in 5 minutes. Language and film/conversation classes are fantastic, too

    Amazing selection of travel books. Come here, daydream about where you'll go when you're done working for that start up. Lots of books for NYC natives to keep you occupied until the traveling starts

    This may be my favorite bookstore of all time. It isn't large, but the selection is excellent, and I always go home with some unexpected gem.

    Idlewild was taken from the original name for New York International Airport, which was renamed JFK in 1963. We even have some stained glass and chairs from the original Idlewild Airport in our store!
