Love this bookstore because of the large selection of books for children in all ages. This time I found a signed ex of Sonia Sotomayor!

Small indie bookstore where YA author Adam Silvera worked before he made it big. Service is hit or miss these days. Great place for signings- just be aware that you need to purchase a book from the author the day of the event if you...More

Books of Wonder is my favourite little haven in NYC. The staff are polite, chatty and helpful, but the selection of books for children and young adults is simply out of this world. The store itself is well-known by a number of high-profile children's and...More

This is a beautifully curated collection of children's books that you can BUY! so many wonderful picture books and fiction titles. If you have little ones, this is a perfect place to shop for them - or just indulge your inner child.

It's a treasure trove for children's books and a perfect place to buy gifts. Fun trivia: the bookstore in You've Got Mail was based on this bookstore.

Offering many of city’s best restaurants and shops set
amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron
District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd
Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building,
which makes a good picture no matter what angle you

architecture as you stroll the streets- much of this
neighborhood is part of a historic district that was
