I spent an incredibly pleasant three hours in your bookstore today, my first visit despite living in Brooklyn for nearly 20 years. Thank you so much for your careful selection of books and the more than reasonable prices. Wishing you another 100 years (at least) of success... you're a big part of what makes NYC such a vibrant and exciting place to live. - Chris W.
