Did you know that the New York Public Library offer book recommendations live on Facebook? What a great idea, anyone in the world can link up to speak to a librarian, who will tap into the amazing source of knowledge that the NYPL has at hand and help find the book that you want to read.
Their Facebook page NYPL The New York Public Library also shows information on events and other book related posts.
If you miss a live session you can go to....https://www.nypl.org/browse/recommendations from the website or @nypl on Twitter.
Or visit the Library's magnificent building on 5th Ave at 42nd St NY.

Bloomingdale's is a huge impressive store on the East Side of NYC. Worth a visit when in New York, the department store stocks a range of great items and in a good location not far from Central Park. This classic building has a lovely atmosphere and if you don't go to shop (which is very difficult) enjoy the experience!
There is even a mention of Bloomingdale's, in one of Bruce Springsteen's songs....."Ain't Good Enough For You".
