Fodor's Expert Review Barbara's Bookstore

University Village Store/Shop/Mall

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

A small local chain popular among book lovers and independent store fans, the bookstore's presence here marks the changes this neighborhood has undergone. New luxury town homes and loft conversions mix with row houses and two-flats on this stretch of the city that not long ago was considered a wasteland. Stop in to check out the latest in fiction and nonfiction or just to scope out the area's new residents.
