On a wet Thursday morning last week, I sought refuge in this serene and light-filled Brooklyn book shop and didn’t leave for well over an hour. Much more than just a handy rain shelter, the Greenlight Bookstore proved to the type of local establishment that every neighbourhood wishes it had: It’s lined with an extensive selection of novels, non-fiction titles, kids’ books and photography tomes, and there are regular author readings and book clubs for kids and adults alike. There’s also a great magazine selection, offering an excellent edit of independent publications including Lucky Peach, n+1 and Granta. All in all, a perfect place to lose a few hours hunting down your next great read - rainy day or not.
