    I was trying to remember the name! I knew it was something with an A that sounded vaguely mythical. I still have a bunch of books I remember specifically finding there.

    I haven't lived in Chicago for over 13 years, but the 3 years I spent in Lakeview 96-99 when I was in my early 20s are an especially happy time in my memory. I miss all those bookstores and used record stores along Clark Street. = I used to do a loop from my apartment off Ashland and Addison, down Clark to hit the Secondhand Tunes and other places, down to the Tower Records on Belden, then over to Lincoln and back up.  It doesn't seem like a decade-and-a-half ago...

    The day The Strand closes is the day I think I'll finally be done with NYC. Colliseum was great, and even the Barnes and Noble across from Lincoln Center had its charms. I already miss Colony Records - a ripoff for buying CDs, but a great place for sheet music, now sucked away so that Times Square can keep evolving into Mall Of America East.

    •  yes, i was sad to read about B&N at Lincoln Ctr. (2+ / 0-)

      stopped in every time I was in NY. Did you ever go to Books Inc. near the Guggenheim? That was a cool store as well. i read the the book the owner wrote about it.

      Too many in this country feel the Constitution should include the 2nd Amendment. And nothing else.
