New York City Bookstores: Word
Word is a lovely bookstore on Franklin Street in Greenpoint. Greenpoint, located just north of Williamsburg and south of Queens,is quickly becoming one of my favorite NY neighborhoods, and Franklin Street is home to many delightful shops, bars, and cafes. Definitely worth a weekend stroll if you’re in the area.
Though Word is housed in a relatively small space, it doesn’t feel cramped. Perhaps a little cluttered, but only in the way a bibliophile loves. The shop is bright, sunny, and full of color.
One of my favorite sections in Word is the stationery section, full of the best handmade cards you’ll find–I wish I lived closer because I’d buy all of my cards here!
Basically, Word is awesome, and just another reason I love visiting Greenpoint.
