Right across the street from Columbia University, this is the Upper West Side's best independent bookstore. It's a great place to browse, not only inside, but outside in the remainders bins where you never know what treasures you might find. The store is a favorite with children (and their parents); every Wednesday afternoon there is a singalong by children's entertainer Danna Banana. For the adults, the store hosts a number of book signings by celebrated authors (many of whom live in the neighborhood).
