Barnes & Noble's small rare- and out-of-print book department, once relegated to its (now closed) Chelsea store, will live again. "The company has decided to relocate the department to a larger store on Broadway and 66th Street, where it will soon be moved from the third floor to a more prominent location on the second floor. The books include fiction first editions as well as arts and design books; prices range from $45 to several hundred dollars." [NY Times]
