Borders Bookstore - Kips Bay 8/2/2006

I do love Barnes and Noble, but sometimes it's nice to know other bookstores do exist! Borders at Kips Bay has a large magazine selection towards the back on the first floor. It's not as large as the one at Barnes and Noble at Union Square, but it's still a good bet. There are some fun gifts/gadgets/trinkets at the front of the store, and it has a bit more of a funky feel than Barnes and Noble. There is also a cafe on the first floor. This branch is also less claustrophobic feeling than the Borders on Park and 57th which has too many floors and feels too crowded. The layout of the Kips Bay store is on 2 floors, very open, very manageable, good place to spend some time leafing through books. If you need a break from Barnes and Noble, check out Borders! more

Convenience and little else. 5/21/2006

I'm glad this place is here, mainly because it's a good place to meet friends when going to the movies next door. That said, I don't think the store is organized that well, nor do I find it that pleasant to shop in. I doubt I would ever go in it were it not for the movie theatre next door. That said, their graphic novel section is surprisingly strong. more

Sign up for Discounts! 4/22/2006

What do you do when the movie you want to see is sold out and you have to wait 1.5 hours for the next showing? If you are at Kips Bay, you hit the Borders next door for coffee and some book browsing (please note that the cafe closes early on weeknights - about 1 hour before the store closes and they won't let you sit there). This Borders has a fairly large selection - the children's section is a good one. Sign up for Borders rewards for email discounts and monthly rewards when you spend over $50. more

A great selection as well as music and snacks 8/3/2005

A wide selection of books, accessories, calendars, music of all types, and even a cafe to sit and refresh yourself after all the shopping. They have alot of books on sale, so make sure you take a stroll through those aisles, and you'll be sure to find an extra treat or two at a super price. Also check out their cafe for a quick pick up at a reasonable cost more

Borders Bookstore 6/30/2005

This is a great store. It has a huge selection of books, videos, and music as well as other miscellaneous items. Staff is very helpful in assisting customers in finding specific products. In addition, you are not rushed when perusing materials. There are chairs located through out store to relax and check out various products. Lines are seldom long since additional registers are opened as volume warrants. more
