This is a wonderful bookstore and has great gift selections as well. A great asset to the neighborhood and worth going to for yourself or for gifts--holidays and year 'round!

Nice selection of titles in many subject areas (with rotating sales by section), along with books about local themes or by local authors. Nice children's book section and a small section with quality kids' toys and gifts. Jewelry, pottery and gifts in the attached gift shop make for a nice combination with the bookstore. Pleasant to peruse. Staff is always courteous and helpful. This summer they've been offering some children's activities that are worth checking out as well.

The big bookstore chains are great, but The Open Door in Schenectady is a gem! It has everything you could want in a bookstore -- and even some things you might not expect to find -- like pottery made by local artists, holiday decorations, jewelry and other gift items tucked in among the hundreds to wonderful books. The only thing that would make it better is if there was a cozy tearoom attached!

A small bookstore with a satisfactory selection of books. They have a good size selection of books for adults and children. The books are not overpriced and comparable to those you would find in a larger chain. If you are looking for rarer titles this isn't the place, the selection is quite limited. They have a great children's area with fun things besides books. I would say this is a great local bookstore, but not for someone looking for more obscure titles.

PROS: Quaint, clean
CONS: Not a huge selection of books, rarer titles may be hard to find there
