    One of the best books stores in the city. There’s a small hidden bathroom downstairs underneath the stairs. You’ll need a quarter to enter, but you can ask the staff for one if you really need to go.

    One of the great indie bookstores of New York. They have a coffee shop in one corner of the corner that's a perfect place to start reading the new book you just bought.

    Support a local book seller and shop here! They have a load of books (obviously, make sure to make it downstairs), but also a great selection of mags and greeting cards for that last-minute purchase.

    This is probably the most positively endorsed place on foursquare (with regard to tips). People like it - and why not? It's a nice coffee shop/bookstore.

    My favourite indie bookstore in the city. Check out the staff recommendation for some cool titles to consider. They have a lot of events at the basement, so do check the event listings at the entrance

    Kinfolk, Cereal, The Great Discontent.. This place has the newest and most trendy stuff almost instantly. And even more important, they know what they're doing and really care about print media.

    Absolutely my fav. place to go. Love the fact that it doesn't close early. And it has many independent magazines and books. Poetry section is nice:) And it sells my fav. notebook (little and black).

    High density of excellent books ranging from popular to esoteric. Great cookbook section and don't miss the print-your-own-book press next to the snack bar.

    The design and cookbook section are right next to each other so needless to say I found pure bliss in a 10 square food section of the store. They have a little cafe too.

    Superb curation of new and notable fiction. Download the Goodreads app so you can scan titles and add them to your list. Good place to visit when you feel your Kindle is just not tactile enough.

    Buy a book, any book, and support the printed word so it can last a little longer. Bookstores are a dying breed, and this one needs to stay as long as it can.

    Stumptown coffee is always welcome but you're missing out if you don't sample the always delicious cookies. Try the salted peanut butter, you'll thank me later.

    Psss if they're serving pie at the cafe, especially cobbler, don't pass on it. Ask them to warm it up for you.
