A FAVORITE HAUNT FOR BOOKLOVERS: Left Bank Books at 17 8th Avenue, just north of Abingdon Square, will be closing its doors around the middle of March. At that location since 2010, and before that under the name Bookleaves on West 4th Street at Bank (opened by Arthur Farrier in 1992) it was a destination for book lovers from all over the world, stocked with excellent first and signed editions and hundreds of used books to suit everyone’s taste. Enthusiastic regulars included Glenn Close and Sarah Jessica Parker. We are saddened to lose this unique shop which many had come to regard as a Greenwich Village cultural landmark. Until their closing day they are having a 30 percent off sale. —Robert Heide. Photo by Randolph Graff.
