    The ultimate place to catch a moment of peace (or a celebrity book signing) in the city. 📖

    Jenn Schwartz · September 13

    This is the original (aka first) Barnes and Noble. Sells vinyl records in front. Fantastic appearances by authors and politicians like Elizabeth Warren! (March 2015).

    You should definitely check out B&N's book signing schedule from their website. Getting a hi 5 from your top list celebrity may be a few escalators away from you. Mostly happens at Union Sq. location.
