  1. Robin, this is SOOOOooo COOOOOooool!!! This sounds fantastic! I can’t believe the line-up and then when I saw your name, my eyes bugged out!!! This is SO exciting!! 😀 😀 😀

    • Thanks, AJ! So thrilled to be participating in this wonderful event. It’s going to be a great day for Bank Street, and for our community. Bank Street Book Store is an Upper West Side treasure.

    • There should be. If not on107, within the surrounding blocks. Usually, it’s not too hard getting a spot on a weekend. I know that there’s generally parking at b/n 105-106 on Broadway. I bet 106 b/n West End and Riverside might have spots too.

      • Since it’s a daytime event and it sounds SO wonderful, it just crossed my mind that I might (really don’t know) try to swing it if I can get parking on the street. I know if I come REALLY early, like before dawn, there’s a better chance of parking. A few years ago I was doing face painting gigs at the “Fall for New Jersey” store and knew I had to go really early to get parking anywhere near the premises on the morning of an annual Run that was taking place. It was actually really nice watching the city slowly wake up that day ’cause I hung out in the Starbucks on the opposite corner 🙂

      • *sigh* I’m still grappling with this ’cause I’m not feeling my best, but mostly because I’m thinking that, with all this snow piling up, parking will be near to impossible : / What do you think? How are the streets/parking by you?

      • The streets don’t seem too bad. The snow is melting and there are a lot of slushy puddles. Feel better. Will take lots of photos. Promise! 🙂

      • Ah, but I want to enjoy! and meet people! and see you read! So you’re saying there aren’t large piles of snow taking up precious parking spaces?
