Another French Book Store Lost

Spent the day in New York with my daughter and was bummed to see that instead of this

now there's only this

at Rockefeller Center where the lovely Librairie de France used to be. After 73 years. I guess that's what happens when the rent goes from $30,000 a month to $ 1 million a year.  :(

On the bright side, La Maison du Chocolat's just around the corner on  49th...but it's not the same.  As much as I love chocolate, I love a nice book store even more...


  1. Moi aussi, je pense que la nourriture de l'esprit est beaucoup plus importante que la nourriture tout court (même s'il s'agit de très bon chocolat...) !!

  2. I don't understand, do you live in Paris or the U.S.? I'm a new reader.

  3. I live in the U.S., but my heart lives in Paris (we go often to visit my husband's side of the family). :)
