    One of my favorite bookstores, period. A New York institution. Lovely collection of harder-to-find children's books, original illustrations displayed, and friendly staff will always be happy to help!

    rare books section is...rare. and isn't it the nicest sometimes to escape the city, read a book full of pictures from childhood, and simply enter another world?

    Truly Wonderful. Originally on 7th, I lived here as a child. I'm convinced Kathleen Kelly's "The Shop Around the Corner" was based on this place.

    You know how sometimes you flip your sh*t over the harsh realities of life and the only fix is to manically read children's books while sitting on a creaky floor and eating cupcakes? No? Oh.
