Inside a Brooklyn Independent Bookstore

In a city where independent bookstores are as rare as the C Train, the Morning News' Pitchaya Sudbanthad visits Freebird Books on the Brooklyn waterfront:

Columbia Street's not a very busy thoroughfare compared to the pedestrian traffic in nearby Brooklyn Heights and Cobble Hill, but now and then, the glass panes on the door rattle and a customer walks in. It?s easy to tell if a customer has been there before: The ones who haven?t usually walk in with surprised looks on their faces, not having expected a bookstore at the precipice of Brooklyn's rusting industrial waterfront.
Wow, what a cool spot finally to pick up The Da Vinci Code.
