Make a visit to Morningside

img_1391.jpgThanks to folks in the book business and around NYC who have welcomed us to our new web real estate. We look forward to talking “bookshop” here, as well as sharing news, reviews and interviews.

And, although things in the store are a just a tad hectic right now (“the usual seasonal upheaval” as some have dubbed Rush) we’d love you to make a visit to Morningside Heights one of these days — if you haven’t already been.

We’re centrally located between two well-known landmarks:

You can’t miss the neon of Tom’s Diner (made famous by Suzanne Vega and Seinfeld), on the corner of 112th and Broadway. And just a block further east, the street dead-ends into the magnificent Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine. Smack dab in the middle of these two famous spots is where you’ll find us — right next door to the post office. A thoroughly nourishing NYC block — for the mind, soul, and stomach!

There’s much more to see and do in Morningside, and we’ll be sure to share additional news from the ‘hood in coming months. For now, though, it’s back to kicking off another successful semester of course book sales.

    It is great to hear about a strong brick and mortar bookstore. Where I live, there seem to be fewer and fewer of them. I wanted to say that I particularly like the look and feel of both your store’s website and your blog. Everything is clear, easy to find, and attractive to look at. I would recommend having whoever set up your blog template, add your website favicon to replace the WordPress one. I am one of those browsers who uses a lot of tabs and there was a brief moment when I thought I had lost your blog.

    I have only visited New York City a few times but it sounds like Morningside would be a great area to spend a day. I confess that part of this is that I would like to see “Tom’s” in the flesh since I have been a pretty big fan of Seinfeld’s TV series. Anyway, I wish you continuing good fortune and hope to visit your store someday.

    Thanks for stopping by with those kind words Steven, and the helpful tech tips too — We’ll look into that favicon thing soon. Let us know when you come visit!
