City Lights Bookstore | The Poetry Room

At the heart of the Beatnik movement, City Lights is a can't-miss bookstore for lovers of books, culture, and hidden spaces. Spread over three levels, this isn't your average seller of books—it specializes in make-you-think kinds of fiction and non-fiction.

You might have a quick browse before taking your photo out front, because this place is famous, after all. Or you might wind your way up to the top floor, the Poetry Room, and pull up a rocking chair, set yourself down with a volume of something awesome (I recommend Jane Hirshfield) and feel the history around you.
