Kings Plaza Mall, lower level, north side, Flatbush and Ave U Clone of B. Dalton with a different hair color and freckles.One poster writes:"I suppose that there *are* *real* bookstores here--after all Brooklyn byitself is the third or so most populous city in the U.S. It is just thatI have never had the pleasure of finding one. I was spoiled many years agoby a bookstore in Huntington, Long Island called Oscar's. This was at thetime that Oscar was still running it, and it was marked by a true love ofbooks for their contents and themselves. Unfortunately those are qualitiesrarely still found in today's world."
