    Books! The $1 carts are full of interesting reads, the scifi section is slim, but everything else is solid!

    Not the best prices or largest selection, but solid nonetheless.

    Gothamist says, "Once immortalized on an Adrian Tomine New Yorker cover, Unnameable Books became the scrappy David to Amazon's big, bad Goliath. Cramped shelves and comfy chairs." Read more

    Piles and piles and piles of books, both used and new. Great little hole in the wall book store. Read more

    Check out the wall of found items from used books dropped off at the store. It's behind one of the bookcases near the register.

    Tuck into an intelligently curated host of popular new titles and used classics at the unassuming book shop known for staying open until 11 p.m.

    A sprawling and sometimes unorganized shop, Unnameable is an essential piece of Brooklyn culture. The store specializes in poetry and zines, but you never know what you'll discover at Unnameable! Read more

    Really good curation of books here. Check out the used books for a nice impulse even though you own a kindle purchase.

    Great chill obscure music with a stunning selection--the kind where you can actually just browse and find some true gems. Intimate readings in their basement (winter) and backyard (warmer months).

    Whether I'm here for 20 minutes or two hours I always find something worth picking up, and their used stuff is usually at least half off cover price. A true neighborhood gem.

    Great new & used comics selection. Lots of indie, foreign, and top creators. I get the sense they buy books from starving art students.
