14.  Berl’s Brooklyn Poetry Shop

Opened in 2013, Berl’s Brooklyn Poetry Shop opened just in time for the Brooklyn Book Festival. They began as vendors in 2011 at the Brooklyn Flea, where they sold limited edition chapbooks, and were part of the New York Poetry Festival on Governor’s Island. Now in Dumbo, in a space with a metal floor and vaulted red stoop, the owners, Farrah Field and Jared White can say they are the only bookstore in New York City specific to poetry. Located at 126A Front Street in Brooklyn.
