Gotham Book Mart, on 46th Street between Madison and 5th, is a fantastic shop in many ways. I'll talk more about it later, but I just wanted to mention their poetry section is satisfying! So many different unknown favorites and familiar names. Though it's only down the block from Barnes and Noble, I think it will last in this location because it's been in Midtown since the 20's and is still flourishing. Plus, though I love B & N, there are things you just can't find there....like old books, a whole section dedicated to James Joyce, and more. If only they had a little coffee shop.
