Could It Be?

April 11, 2011

I'm a HUGE fan of the movie You've Got Mail. I love that movie!!! Romance with books as a big aspect. Are you kidding me?! So imagine my surprise when I stumble upon this picture of an actual bookstore. Could it be?! Is this bookstore the same one used in the store? I have to say, the outside pretty much look the same to me. I sooo wish I could go to this store sometime. Guess what movie I'll be watching while I clean today?

Oh wow, this looks just like the bookstore in the movie! Maybe they DID use it in the movie.

Now I feel the urge to see the movie again.:)

it's such a good movie! perfect feel good pick. sadly, i was wrong. this bookstore isn't the one from the movie. looks pretty close, though, doesn't it?

It definitely looks like the movie bookstore. Do you know its location?

I think it's in New York, but I'mnot positive. So wish I could go there.

I've looked it up and it's in New York City on Madison Ave. Apparently it's very successful. I want to go visit someday!!

Thanks for the answer, Jen! If I ever visit NYC, this will be my first stop.:)

you're very welcome! I may have to stow away in your luggage for that trip, though. :)

It is is NYC and it was the inspiration for the movie. We went to piano lessons just a few blocks away and it was where we always went to get books for our summer reading lists. Because of this ...I HATED THAT MOVIE!!! I was SOOOOOO mad that the huge corporate chain won and that she ended up with him anyway!! After destroying such a magical place!! The man had more than enough money to keeo it going. A corporate love story. Blech!

I love you anyway, Jen :)

Dee- I agree with you. I didn't like that the independant store was forced to close it's doors. so not a good message to put out there. Her store was distinctive and a hugepart of peoples' lives and it should have stayed open. He could've helped her do that. Still, I love looking at the books everywhere.
