Our Summary Review

Sure "to suit a word-lover's fancy", this "gem" in the Midtown main branch's "cool old-world surrounds" has "much to choose from" with its "mix of books", pens and stationery, "interesting jewelry", "New Yorky" souvenirs and "arty items" featuring the twin lion mascots; the Harlem sibling (aka the Schomburg Shop) adds African artifacts to the mix – both are "awesome" if you're gift shopping "for your favorite bookworm."
