I;d heard about Malaprops and wanted to check them out while we were on vacation.
The bookstore isn't very big but has a fair amount of books. I would say their focus in on local authors (superb) and oddities. Hubby and daughter didn;t find anything they wanted but I found some great local books and a cute Malaprop's coffee cup (peace, love, books).
We missed by a couple days both ways excellent author signings that I wished we had been able to make! if you sign up for the email newsletter you'll have advance warning of who is coming by!
they do have their own coffee shop inside, but I was not very impressed with the coffee.
All in all I'd say it was worth the 4 block walk back and forth to go here, to battery Park book Exchange and to Spellbound to make the entire family happy!
