Temporary Book Store on Fifth
We've heard a lot of people say that Fifth Avenue needs a good, locally-owned book store. But, with the ever-popular Community Bookstore just up the hill on Seventh Avenue, it's hard for potential bookstore owners to imagine opening on Fifth (especially when the world is rapidly moving towards ebooks).
Of course, competition from the Community Bookstore isn't a problem when Community Bookstore, itself, opens on Fifth Avenue. That's right, today, visit a specially curated pop-up version of Community Bookstore at Kos Kaffe Roasting House (251 5th Avenue between Carroll and Garfield Street) while the real Community Bookstore's floors get replaced.
Seventh Avenue's (temporary) loss is Fifth Avenue's (temporary) gain. Drop by between 8-7 and check it out. Hey, who knows, if the reaction is strong enough, maybe they'll think about opening another, permanent location on Fifth!
