"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Closed and Open for Business

I went to the movies on the upper west side yesterday afternoon and stopped into the big Barnes and Noble at Lincoln Center. It was the final day of business for B&N at that location. Depressing. Then I walked uptown on Broadway and at 72nd street, I found this treasure trove:

Hot dog.

…and Happy New Year.

Aw, that B&N is where I bought your Curt Flood book, Alex!

NICE! Man, I would LOVE it if I ever saw that Flood book being sold on the street! Seriously, I bought a bunch of stuff from this guy on the street and kicked myself for not just buying him out.

F'ing Giants.

How many days 'til pitchers & catchers?

[2] Should have not only bought him out, but done a BB interview. A person who amassed such a baseball book collection might actually be as intesting as most of the subjects covered between the pages.

I've read I'm Glad You didn't Take It Personally. Some people only have one good book in them.
