At just 1,000 square feet, this independent bookstore in Greenpoint is anything but big. But what it lacks in space it more than makes up for in terms of charm and community. The store carries a range of paperbacks and cookbooks, and they’ll order anything your heart desires. If you’re looking for a gift, they also have adorable cards and stationery to choose from. In addition, Word hosts events like author readings, Q&As and potlucks.
