"Infotainment? What the hell are you talking about?"

Community Bookstore, Brooklyn

The Community Bookstore on Court Street, Brooklyn is worth a detour, that is if you can find your way inside. A labyrinth of messy proportions awaits the book enthousiast, complete with obscure reference shelves, tons of hoarded unorganized books in cartons amidst an obscure collection of plastic dolls, and an entrance area that looks more like the cavernous remains of an obsessive-compulsive hoarder à la Collyer Brothers. Enjoy!

The entrance is located right behind this wall of stuff. The owner as well.

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
