WORD is a neighborhood bookstore that will remind you why print publishing will never slip into obscurity, even as we live on the front lines of technology. Owner Christine Onorati has worked with books for her entire life, first in publishing, and then as the proprietor of a bookstore on Long Island. She opened Word in 2007, and as soon as you step into the cozy Greenpoint shop you know that you’re in capable hands. Onorati does all the buying herself, choosing books geared specifically to her loyal following. Since WORD is small, its selection is fine tuned, which makes Onorati a curator as well. Greenpoint has the feel of a small town plunked down in a big city, a close-knit community that is reflected in WORD, which is enmeshed in the thriving local scene, showing the work of Greenpoint artists in the shop's windows, and generously supporting fundraising efforts for local art initiatives. When you go to Word you won’t only find a great book, you’ll also get an authentic feel for the flourishing neighborhood of Greenpoint.Show lessRead more
