Best 'Unimpressive Non-Imperialist Bargain Bookstore' (2008)

DROUGAS

Noam Chomsky screams out from the front desk and doesn't seem out of place in this Carmine Street back alley, remarkable for being one of the few remaining streets with real "old Village" charm, all the more so because of all the great cheap stuff. From biographies on Joyce to studies on Buddhism, tips on how to have great sex and read a tarot card (not at once), amazing picture books on art, and even a Monty Python CD-ROM, you should visit DROUGAS only when you have hours to devote. Highly recommended for anyone with writer's block or boredom or suffering from a complete lack of cash: Books start at $2 and don't go much higher.
