Fodor's Expert Review Idlewild Books

Flatiron District Books/Stationery

Named for the pre-1960s JFK Airport, this travel-inspired bookstore is one of the last of its kind in America. It stocks guidebooks, novels, and children's books grouped by destination, and also runs foreign-language classes, ranging from Arabic to German. If those chairs look familiar, it may be because you huddled in one during a layover at the American Airlines terminal.
