2 Love It
Save it

A visit to this second-floor travel bookstore—which carries JFK Airport’s pre-1963 moniker and even some of its old stained glass—is a reminder that vacations used to be fun before inflated fuel prices and security lines. Guidebooks, travel-related fiction and photo books line wooden bookshelves, while stools and glowing lights invite readers with a wanderlust to take off a load and stay awhile.
