Calling all bookworms! Here are four of our favorite independent bookstores in Park Slope, Cobble Hill, Greenpoint, and Prospect Heights. These charming shops offer new and used books, work from local authors, children’s books, and literary events.


The Community Bookstore (Park Slope)
The Community Bookstore pretty much epitomizes a charming New York bookstore. There’s a large selection of new books, including a handpicked staff selection, as well as author events, book groups, and readings. What makes this bookstore unique is its backyard garden, the perfect place to take your new book and relax.
