    I guess if your not caucasian you won't be greeted and you might (if your lucky) be followed...

  • Sam C.

    Not what it used to be. Singles selection can be tricky, but most desirable trades are in stock. Seems to focus more on toys, accessories, etc. lately, and feels less homey than their old location.

  • Scott B.

    Too many backpacks in too narrow aisles, but fills a big nerd hole in the Union Square area. Better than their old corner lot, but wish they'd open up the basement level for back issues.
