My wife and I like to visit independent bookstores when we are traveling. Recently we browsed through the McNally Jackson bookstore (http://www.mcnallyjackson.com) located at 52 Prince Street, New York, New York.
It had a wide selection of books, though I found the Science Fiction collection a little lacking. We were both intrigued with the on-site printing press that allows you to choose and have custom printed a wide variety of books. Their printing machine can also be sed to ‘self-publish’. They also have an on-site cafe that would allow you to spend some time reading in the store.
This is a nice bookstore with a wide assortment of books. If you are interested in books, you will like McNally’s.
