Located in New York City’s Morningside Heights neighborhood, Bank Street Books is a treasure trove of children’s literature. Founded in 1970, the store houses over 60,000 titles, including fiction, non-fiction, non-English and picture books, as well as educational toys, games, CDs and DVDs. A progressive store, Bank Street even sells books dealing with more serious subject matter, including divorce, adoption and social action. And if you or your little one find the selection somewhat daunting, stop the staff for suggestions. Instead of rattling off the latest best sellers list, employees here are constantly reading for the latest, greatest titles.

Insider Tip:

Check the store’s calendar for special events. It frequently hosts talks with popular children’s authors, including Chris Van Allsburg and Julia Alvarez.
