Greenlight Bookstore
Opened in 2009, Brooklyn's Greenlight Bookstore is run by owners familiar with the NYC publishing and bookselling worlds, both of whom brought with them an eye for a comfortable space and a selection that goes well beyond best-sellers. Fort Greene locals—many of whom are authors themselves—have heartily embraced the place and the community spirit endows its day-to-day operations as well as its event series.

A great independent bookstore right in the center of Fort Greene (and conveniently located across the street from Habana Outpost). This bookstore has free book events constantly, so you’ll meet authors and stay up-to-date on the literary scene. ALso, Greenlight really focuses on community, and what better way to meet good people than to get involved in your local bookstore? Greenlight Bookstore is super involved in the Brooklyn book scene. They were one of the main booths at the Brooklyn Book Festival and were there selling the books of the speakers. Go to Greenlight, get a new book, cross the street for some tacos at Habana Outpost  and eat and read in the park. Your weekend afternoon is done.
