It opened in 1975 founded by Glenn Goldman with the mission to sell books that were not a part of the mass book market. They specialize in new and used books especially those from university, international, and small presses. There is a great selection of autographed books too. Cushiony chairs allow visitors to browse and read comfortably. The well-organized shelves mean you can hone in on exactly what you came to find if you don't have the time to peruse deeply. Check out the dedicated sections such as Kerouac Alley. The shop is open every day from 11to 5.
