  • Biggest and best Barnes & Noble in the city.
  • PHOTO: Good luck finding parking on Union Square now, but in 1924 the plaza outside was a parking lot! See the old fashioned autos lined up, at the link!
  • Homeless people come here to pee and do other things. That's pretty much all I have to say about this place.
  • Nice bookstore. Full retail price. I know I can get it cheaper at Amazon but I'm one of the plentiful idiot consumers and wants it right now.
  • Best place to get a starbucks coffee when the Union Sq. East/West locations are packed to the exits... + unlimited free wifi
  • Tribeca Film Festival Panel talks are hosted here.
  • Free shoe shine on the escalator
  • Arguably the best B & N to browse at, but the cafe- full of freeloaders and unsmiling employees, isn't fun to have a cup of coffee at.
  • This Barnes & Noble store is also an AT&T Wi-Fi Hot Spot. Curl up with your Nook and connect with AT&T Wi-Fi.
  • Grab an armload of books and take a seat on the 4th floor; It has plenty of chairs, room to spread out, and occasional book signings.
  • Starbucks Caf on the 2nd Floor and great view on Union Square. Free Wifi.
  • Starbucks is on the second floor!
  • Come here just for the fresh book smell. Not kidding.
  • This is my favorite Barnes and noble! It's huge! You can always go read your new book right across the street at Union Square Park.
  • You can pick up all your favorites at Barnes & Noble. Dont forget to pay at the register using PayPal:
  • The cop there currently has her hand on her gun. Better be careful.
  • The Starbucks on the third floor is my secret hideaway! They offer hot soup and small quiet tables. :)
  • Book signing April 21: Join Wayne Pacelle, the CEO and President of The Humane Society of the United States, in celebrating the debut of The Bond: Our Kinship with Animals, Our Call to Defend Them.
  • Bring a charged laptop, because there are no outlets to be found on the 4th floor cafe!
  • Free wifi - that's all you need to know.
