Last Weekend

With Brian's brother, Spencer, visiting last weekend we set out on our own mini version of the "Kindle-less Walking Tour" and enjoyed some of the more off-the-beaten-path bookstores in the city. It was fabulous and I highly recommend it!

We started in the West Village and happened to walk by a new shop (just opened in October) one of my good friends had told me about. I had to stop in for a quick look and luckily the menfolk obliged. For all moms and moms to be you should check it out! Clementine: Extraordinary Consignment, Maternity to 4T. For pregnant stroller pushers, there is a short stairway down to the shop.

Other stops along the way!

Housing Works Bookstore Cafe.
I bought 4 good children's, hardcover books for under $20.

Restaurant supply stores abound on Bowery.
I love browsing through all the kitchen tools.

Lunch at Frank. Good Italian food.
And that's saying a lot since we usually don't like to eat out for Italian.

One of the many clothing "galleries" in SoHo.

Bubble Tea (okay, juice) on St. Mark's Pl.

St. Marks Bookshop

We also stopped by McNally Jackson Books in Nolita, which is a very open, bright bookshop.
