Better be careful exploring a place like that. If you wind up in L-space, there's no telling where, when or if you'll emerge.

Looks like every used bookstore in the city to me.

My son found this weird used videogame store in a house that had a similar feel

That's in Saratoga Springs, New York. It does look pretty great. I know of two closer to home; Ohio Bookstore in downtown Cincinnati, which is just a real weird big place with one of the floors only accessible from a sort of outside fire exit, and The Book Loft in Columbus, which is a lot more like the one in the tweets, except the rooms are pretty small and you want to be there during the week when there aren't tourists, if you really like to spend time with books.

My favorite thing found in a labyrinthine, magic old bookstore (as in "removing the books renders the building structurally unsound"):

There was a place in Fort Lauderdale called All Books & Records (they had 2 locations) that I loved exploring.  I'd go there at least once a month and trade used books.  The store closed when the owner retired.

What's amazing to me is how the wingtips-and-shorts look never caught on, especially in women's fashion.

My favorite line from the the tweet:

But it's not hard to find-or at least, if it WANTS you to find it
 
2022-09-29 8:23:21 AM  
Looks pretty much like every used book store I've ever been in.

I'm not a super big book nerd or anything..But I love places like this.. Maps/Charts, reference type books and
textbooks are my preferred type of thing..

This bookstore is so magical it can appear in a thread every day.
 
2022-09-29 8:25:08 AM  
My favorite bookstore find-- "Knights Modern Seamanship Tenth Edition Revised 1941"

I don't own a boat or sail, but it has lots of useful information.

Went to dinner at a guy's house who had just retired from the Merchant Marine-- he had the same book on his shelf.

A couple of the pictures definitely resemble it.

I wouldn't recommend Ohio Bookstore to everyone; you have to just really love the idea of being around old books and also maybe be open to a fairly eccentric experience, but I love going there, during non-cold seasons. The upper floors are too cold for me in winter.

There is (or was) a place in Oak Bluffs on Martha's Vineyard that was fantastic. An entire barn full of used books.
Ever since I was a kid, I have loved used book stores. There's nothing like finding an interesting book for a few bucks.

+1 on the smells.  My wife can't stand them, but I love the smell of old books

I had no idea Cincy had a good bookstore like this.

I know there are some pretty obscure/old places around inside the 275 loop, the Hall of Justice is pretty cool, but I've never had the chance to go down there and really explore.
