I stopped in Rizzoli on my way home from a memorial service last week, grateful for the remaining book stores in Gotham, so many having closed, killed- as it were, by the likes of Amazon. My favorite on the Upper West Side was Shakespeare Books. It's now a Duane Reade. Then it was the Barnes & Noble at Lincoln Center, which might still be there if the company hadn't tried to expand so quickly. It's now Century 21. Will Rizzoli remain a presence in Gotham when patrons can purchase all the books in the store at 30 percent less online? I wonder.
