As an Upper Wet Side resident ourselves, the bookstore Barnes & Noble store at 1972 Broadway was a popular place for Upper West Side residents over the past 15 years. Earlier this year, Barns & Nobles were closed, and the new retailer that will replaced the bookstore will be a department store, Century 21. It will be the second Manhattan location and seventh store overall for Century 21, which also has stores in Brooklyn, Queens, Long Island and New Jersey.
For those of you who do not know what Century 21 is, Century 21 is a department store that offers high-end clothes at a discount (similar to TJ MAXX, Filene's basement, SYMS, Duffys and etc).
