On The Final Day Of The Barnes & Noble's Existence, Chaos

The above photo was snapped on the final day in the life of the Astor Place Barnes & Noble in New York City.

The photographer suggests, “For the new year, fellow bibliophiles, let’s resolve not to defile our remaining bookstores in this way.”

Indeed. If you’ve never lived or worked New York City trust me when I say that rather than move here out of curiosity, you can simply look at this photo and know exactly what it is like.
