19. Spoonbill & Sugartown Booksellers
Located at 218 Bedford Avenue, Brooklyn, Spoonbill & Sugartown Booksellers opened their doors in 1999 with a wide selection of contemporary art and architecture books and – a little bit of everything else including their cat, curled up in various places throughout the shop. So much a part of Williamsburg, the shop was featured in the HBO’s second season premier of Girls. They continue an emphasis on imported and hard-to-find books, with a cool corner of vintage educational materials.
