Jackson Heights Bookstore steps up to fill need

... sort of...
Barnes and Noble hasn't tapped into the potential market of the JH area but since Librería Lectorum and Librería Macondo have both shut down in Chelsea....

Barco de Papel, a children’s bookstore in Jackson Heights, Queens, has expanded to include all kinds of Latin American literature, including poetry and essays.

“We have to adapt to the new times,” said Ramón Caraballo, the owner of the 80th St. shop. “Some readers who used to go to 14th St. now come to us. So we made all these changes.”
