Good for both children and adults. Good way to spend a weekend afternoon. Just behind it is Central Park, in case your kids are feeling restless at the moment.

Wonderful ambience. Lots of book selections. Haven't fully checked it out as just visited it a couple of dats back. Could they expand their newspaper catalogue to include international newspapers? Would definitely make repeated visits.
