    Set up like an amphitheater, this store and events space took a hit after Hurricane Sandy. It has since made a full recovery, rebounding back to its original status as a hip literary hangout spot.

    Come for the art books, stay for the shows & other events. See their website for listings. For performances that pack a more avant-garde punch, head to St. Ann's Warehouse. - Green Guide Editor
