Green Apple Books


On a windy Wednesday morning as I stepped outside of my apartment onto 3rd ave to get some coffee at Marthas, I realized that I had yet to do an assignment for my digital journalism class.  On my way down the street I thought of Green Apple Books on clement between 6th and 7th.  I was pretty impressed with myself considering I hadnt had my morning cup of energy. 

When I arrived at the store I went through their 1$ used section for a bit (such a steal!), and then ventured inside.  Now, from the outside this little place does not look like it can hold more than a couple hundred books, but once your inside be prepared to be overwhelmed.  The place is stacked to the brim with good finds.  I must have spent 2 hours meandering around, exploring my curiousity, and getting lost (literally).  I went upstairs to see if I could find a good coffee table book and found this amazing photography book that I fell in love with when I was in NY earlier this year.  I couldnt get it at the time becasue it weighs just about 50 pounds.  The book is by this photographer named Dave LaChappelle , his work features actors, singers, models and icons in strange sceneries.  They are amazingly interesting and beautiful.  So my random trip to Green Apple books was a complete success!
