I got misty visiting this one, America.

Well, OK, not really misty, but hallowed be this ground, and I was downright respectful.

I asked a bookseller if I could take some photos and then that’s all I did — no conversations, no questions, I just snapped my photos and took it all in.  P1010375

Then I tried to think of another bookstore in America that carries the same weight as City Lights….

I couldn’t come up with one.

So thank you, Mr. Ferlinghetti.  Thank you, Mr. Martin.

A must visit.

  1. Totally appropriate to get misty over City Lights, Marc.
