About time…

SnowscapesansskierfinalAbout time… A Canadian micro-chain is opening a new bookstore in NYC. Conveniently located off one of my most favorite walks at Prince Street between Lafayette and Mulberry.

Just to let you know, if you’re not from around here, the bookstore scene in NYC nowadays is close to worthless. Labyrinths is great (if they also take the prize for horrendously pretentious staff), and St. Marks is OK (too hip for it’s own good…) Other than that, the Barnes and Noble and newer Borders are fine for broad market new books, staple works, and that’s about it…

Hope this one lives up to the big PR it’s gotten. The Times had a piece this morning, as did NPR…

I’ll check it out and let you know.
