A little bit about the bookstore and it's neigborhood:

Babbo's is located in Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn where Authors Isaac Asimov and Pete Hamill grew up. Originally primarily an Italian and Irish-American neighborhood developed after the Civil War, Windsor Terrace borders landmarks like Greenwood Cemetery and Prospect Park and there has been a recently influx of writers and  young professionals.

Authors who live here (or in nearby Park Slope)  include Jonathan Safron Foer, Nicole Krauss, Paul Auster, Arthur Bradford, Siri Hustvedt, Jhumpa Lahiri, Rick Moody, Jon Scieszka, Ned Vizzini, and Mo Willems.

Did you know Windsor Terrace has also popped up (or been a featured back drop) in many films including Dog Day Afternoon and Smoke?
