Henry Miller grew up not too far from this quaint literary emporium. And though this independent bookstore carries classics on par with those by the Tropic of Cancer author, the shop also proffers more up-to-date titles. Weekly literary events, which feature an abundance of local talent, are frequent at this bibliophiles' hub.

Super cute little bookstore, they have a great mix of staff picks, top sellers and everything in between. I love the NYC history section and kids section. The only cons are that because it's so small it gets crowded very easily, and that all the books are for the market price so it's kind of pricey. But it is nice to know you're supporting a local bookseller!
