City Lights Bookstore, 261 Columbus Avenue, San Francisco, CA

Referred to (in Kerouac’s ‘Big Sur’) simply as ‘the bookstore’. As you can probably imagine I spent quite a few hours in there and had a happy time.

  1. I went to City Lights over a decade ago, and I remember all the graffittied names. It’s amazing to think of all the writers and readers and old souls who’ve wandered between those bookshelves.

      Thanks for the comment, yes it is. It was just magical to sit in the upstairs poetry room and read books for ages. One of the best moments of my trip (and there have been many good ones)

  2. City Lights Bookstore is really the best that American culture has to offer. Can it better than “the true epicenter” of the movement? I think not!
