I purchased a poster over two decades ago and made this a destination for my first visit to NYC. good selection, including some vintage advertising. If we're here longer I would make a point of attending an author event.
Tucked away in a row of shops on Lexington avenue, this store is off the beaten path when exploring NYC;however, for the closet gourmet cook or for the reader of food writing this was a great place to pick up a book or two.

Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the
neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
