I rarely go in looking for a specific book, as this is the charm of used bookstores, and always come out with some beautiful edition of a fairly hard-to-find book.

This place attracted me like no other. I love used bookstores. Once I enter, it usually takes me a few hours before I venture out. LOL. Its like a big black hole and I can’t get out!! But willingly so.

Vivian H., New York, NY

A used book store to rival the best… a gem of a store… walking in feels like entering a cozy reading cave, where every shelf contains something never before seen. P.S. is not to be missed in any foray down under the bridges.

…I never made the party but stayed in P.S. for 1.5 hours looking through some great photography technique and coffee table books. Every time I go back there’s another great book to buy
