A store focused on books for kids. At 18 West 18th Street. They have all sorts of events, and authors come in there to read. You can Google the store and find out about all that. It's an active place.
It's too bad there's not a bookstore for kids in every part of town. Couldn't there be tax incentives for anyone who'd want to start a store in neighborhoods where books aren't? Couldn't someone like Scholastic start stores in book-less neighborhoods?
The libraries satisfy some of that need of course. But the city's old libraries are not open as many hours as the shiny libraries are in the suburbs where they have well-lit bookstores too.
