Literary leanings Library Place is a home that has truly earned its title. Inside this unusually bright and air-conditioned space, many walls bear intriguing collections of books, covering all manner of tastes – from children’s literature to leather-bound collectibles, and promisingly well-thumbed paperbacks. And fittingly, here there are plenty of places to set your imagination free. The three desks will suit those bent on serious study, while the velvet sofas and ample windows of the living room will delight anyone seeking a spot in which to daydream. Or, should you require further inspiration, there are plenty of subway lines nearby to carry you into storied Manhattan. The bibliophiles Your hosts are a scholarly pair who travel frequently for their work. They find that their New York home is the ideal base for researching and writing between trips. ##Between the lines Although this home’s books are bountiful, that’s certainly not the whole story. There are vintage touches at many a turn, including black-and-white photographs hanging on exposed brick walls, an antique cabinet serving as a kitchen island, and a bathroom ornamented with pretty vintage mirrors. Indeed, even easily distracted bookworms will find much to linger over here. But should you wish to create your own story, leafy-yet-lively Boerum Hill is a pleasant place to begin, its streets lined with characterful cafés and boutiques. Or for further thinking space, the Manhattan Bridge, as well as the Brooklyn Bridge and Bridge Park, are a 15-minute wander away..
