When I think about what makes my Upper West Side neighborhood so special at the tippy top of my list is Bank Street Book Store. Where else can you enjoy free story time, meet your favorite authors and illustrators, and help your children explore cultures and worlds far beyond the Upper West Side?
Nothing makes me happier than to celebrate Independent Bookstore Day at Bank Street.
Here are a few photographic highlights of this very special store on this special day.

Bank Street Book Store is a treasured gem of the Upper West Side. It is one of two children’s bookstores in all of Manhattan. That’s right. Two.
The next generation of authors and illustrators
So, please be sure to make Independent Bookstore Day more than an annual event. At your next visit to Bank Street Book Store, don’t forget to buy lots of books and shout out a very big THANK YOU to this incredible bookstore for enriching both our children and community.
