I spotted this book at Barnes and Nobles and other shops. Dads are the Original Hipsters shows that your dad was cool: He listened to vinyl before you did. He drank Whiskey before you did. He had a mustache before you did.
The Kinokuniya Book Store is a must. Located on the West side of Bryant Park (1073 6th Avenue) the book store shows books in English and Japanese on 3 floors.
There's much more to tell about New York but that's all for now on this blog. More to come on my next visit.
