Lots of Brooklyn neighborhoods—Greenpoint, South Brooklyn, Park Slope—have great neighborhood bookstores. But trust us, because we live in a neighborhood without one, that if we’re getting on the subway to buy a book, we’re going to this clean, well-lighted place in Fort Greene. Most likely, we’re going for one of its A-lister readings, but also likely just to browse its well-organized and well-curated selection, which places subtle but much-appreciated attention on local authors.
686 Fulton Street, Fort Greene.
