New York City is made up of five boroughs: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Each one has enough attractions—and enough personality—to be a city all its own. Learn more about them with this guide.
Lauded for having one of the most knowledgeable staffs in the City (some of whom have worked there since before 1995, when the store was known as Burlington Books), this independent shop specializes in rare first-editions, hard-to-find hard covers and literary classics. Well-known authors also commonly pop in for under-the-radar signings, so don't be surprised if you find yourself rubbing elbows with Bret Easton Ellis.
