America’s Best Bookstores: City Lights

Michael Robles

City Lights, San Francisco

Poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti cofounded this beacon for beatnik culture in 1953, and 60 years on, the three-story North Beach institution retains its alternative edge with subjects ranging from politics and poetry to spirituality and surrealism. Its publishing arm has produced hundreds of titles, including poetry collections by Pablo Neruda, Allen Ginsberg, and Ferlinghetti himself. citylights.com
