Jezebel at Bowne and Co. Stationers
Following a horrendous brunch a few weeks ago, a serendipitous meeting ensued with the couldn't be sweeter unless their veins flowed with cotton candy duo behind Bowne and Co. Stationers, Robert and Fela. I'm tickled pink that they've added Jezebel to the shelves of their amazing shop, which is part of the South Street Seaport Museum, and functions as if it were the 1870s. Really! I swear. Robert and Fela don't even have internet access! It is worth slugging through Fulton Street, right past the melodiously named Pearl Street, to turn left at Water Street and step back into the way back machine. Next time I'm down there, I plan on bringing a fat book and an enormous cup of coffee (sorry, Kusmi) and planting myself on the benches across the way, before walking down the block for a visit to Leontine.
