What to do when you’re in…New York

November 14, 2014

Go over to Brooklyn and hang out at Berl’s Brooklyn Poetry Shop, the only all-poetry bookstore in New York City. Owned and operated by poets Jared White and Farrah Field, the store is located in the neighborhood known as DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass).

In addition to an extensive selection of poetry books and chapbooks, the store has an exhibition space (which in March displayed a quilt chapbook, Laked, Fielded, Blanked, from a poem/chapbook by Brooklyn Copeland). They also offer readings as well as what they call Poetry Take Out: curated poetry titles available by subscription.

Visit Berl’s Brooklyn Poetry Shop online, on Facebook and, most especially, in person.

    Ah, if I still lived in New York… Yet I am happy here in the south of France!
