Writing for the gothamist.com, Rebecca Fishbein offers some guidance that any librarian visiting the Big Apple will appreciate. She provides a list of Best Bars In NYC Where You Can Read In Peace.
Ms. Fishbein admits that “some bars are too loud and dark for book-reading”, but she has found others that “are inviting and quiet enough that you can enjoy literature in peace.” And fortunately, she shares a list of her “favorite NYC reading bars” along with their locations and a description of their various amenities.
P.S. She also invites visitors to leave a list of their favorites in the comments.
