I first stumbled in here years ago, loved it, and couldn't remember where it was! Ah, but with the joys of the internet I found it again, and stop in often to check out their great selection.
... or if you're just looking for a summer novel! But for the antique book lover or anyone interested in rare books, maps, and the like, this is heaven!
I have a weakness for small storefront bookstores, particularly when they dedicate a good percentage of their limited shelf space to poetry and art. And the bargain book racks out front are always worth a quick perusal.
With exhibitions, interactive exhibits, and great events, Rotunda is a Brooklyn gem. Educational programs offer opportunities for residents to work with artists; discussions, panel presentations, and conversations with artists make this a trove of opportunities waiting to be taken advantage of.
This tiny gallery, located in Carlitos Cafe in Spanish Harlem, features political work in an intimate setting, often organized around a specific theme.
A wonderful small gallery in the Bronx -- risky and interesting work in regular rotation, along with collaborations with local performers and arts organizations make it worth a visit. Not your mother's art...
This great little gallery has a fun array of local art to wear and display; prices are about what you'd expect for local, original art. Definitely worth a trip...
With all the Thai restaurants in the city and the borough and even the neighborhood, it's hard to justify one this... satisfactory. The service and food are both passable. Uninspiring, but fine.
Anyone who lives in a NYC studio apartment knows how much fabulousness you can pack into a tiny space, and this store proves that holds true for retail as well.
Nothing spectacular, but they get the job done. The service is fine, perfectly cordial and they've yet to lose, shrink, or otherwise destroy anything we've given them...
