This neighborhood store, which underwent a mini-financial boom after the publication of Jonathan Lethem's Motherless Brooklyn (the store sold 1,000 copies in a few weeks), specializes in dignified subway reading. The "magazine section" consists, essentially, of the Believer, Bookforum, and the New York Review of Books. What more could you possibly want?
