One Response to “Your Hosts”
  1. we met a few years ago. i was visiting a friend, new to your neighbourhood, and we spotted your bookstore. it was open, we entered, i gasped and we stayed for an hour or so, chatting with you. i am a theatre guy—a lighting designer—pretty much retired. we talked about that, and a bit about your history and discussed how it all came to be.

    anyway, now i am writing a series of 250 word articles about nyc for a travel app out of amsterdam. i’m trying to alter their direction with entries of more eclectic or unusual or specialized interest. a bit new yorker-y or ny times-y than it’s been til now.

    i want to tell people to phone your shop before going. is that the best way for them to gain entry? i think you open only from time to time. if that’s it, that’s what i’ll write, but if there is more predictability, or appointments are taken, i’ll write that.

    i’ve loved your shop, just its idea, and it gives me solace. i always walk by when i go to marjorie eliot’s, and that, plus hearing the music waft from her apartment (if i’m late), gives me joy.

    you can write to me directly at ghdunbar@gmail dot com
