Just like the subject says—I'm looking for bookstores with good foreign language materials in NY! If you have a favorite, do share.

When I was a student living in New York in the 80s, there were a number of good foreign-
language bookstores. Now, they all seem to have closed--at least in Manhattan. In
Flushing, Queens, there are two decent Chinese language bookstores--one from Mainland and
the other from Taiwan, I think.

Book-Off is good for Japanese and so is Kinokinuya which is not that far from Book-Off.

I don't know of any others, at least for the languages I'm interested in.

Kinokuniya is great. The selection at their NYC branch is similar to what you would find
at a branch in Japan.
