Seaburn Books has renovated and reopened this storefront on Broadway between 32nd & 33rd Streets.
The store still carries bargain books, but it now has a whole second floor (basement) and a nicer interior. The organization of the store is lacking a bit. A friend of mine went in on the first day it opened and took it upon himself to organize the poetry section - so, we know that section is all set.
The new manager is super friendly and they have free coffee for visitors. There's a couch and coffee table area that's a comfy place to check out your potential purchases. And there's also a back room where they plan on hosting poetry readings and other live events.
Their selection may not be fabulous, but they'll order in whatever you want (read: free shipping), so give your neighborhood bookstore a chance.
