Sorry, I’ve been lame about not talking Brooklyn shoppe NOT for lack of respect but lack of experience.  Still, I recall the cool little indie, Clovis Press Bookstore on Bedford (in Williamsburg) which was formerly the Downer’s Pharmacy (killer, I mean genius name).  The great thing about that front is that Clovis really kept the feel of the place.  A disorderly treasure chest. Now, it too, is gone RIP 2006.
