Outpost of Powerhouse Books Coming to Park Slope
My friend Peggy Coon posted on Facebook that there’s a new bookstore coming to Park Slope in the space formerly occupied by Reel Life on Eighth Avenue between 11th and 12th Streets. That video store closed last March.
A new bookstore? A new bookstore? A new bookstore? Can you tell I’m excited??
Peggy linked to a post on Here’s Park Slope about some cryptic signage that went up last week in the front window of of the video store that closed last March.
Apparently, an off-shoot of Powerhouse Books, publishers of photography and specialty books and a bookstore in DUMBO is going in. I am very fond of that bookstore. In fact, the Brooklyn Blogfest was held at Powerhouse Books back in 2009.
According to Here’s Park Slope the message said: “Hi there! We’re going to be a brand new bookstore, reading club, mini-gallery, and community space opening in October. Our mothership is in Dumbo, and we’ll be bringing the best stationery, kids, YA, novelty, cooking, decorating, and style books we have there and more…Maybe some wonderful coffee, hard candy…and other items one might find in a general store (that was also a mini gallery and reading space!)
“We can’t wait; we hope you are as excited as we are!

I am so psyched.
