I only know a couple that are quite small in Manhattan. Does anyone know where I will find the larger stores?

Thanks.

The one in Union Square is huge. The one on 5th and 18th is actually more of a text book store than a real book store.

17th btwn University Place and Park Ave S I think.

The one on 5th Ave/18th has a large textbook section but also has regular books.

But it doesn't compare to the selection of the union square location. And the OP said he specifically wanted a big store. I don't think he was shopping for text books...

The one on Union Square is the flagship store. I can't remember if the Union Square or the 5th Ave. store is THEE Barnes and Noble in the days before it was a chain.

Close - it's between Broadway and Park. University Place ends at 14th Street. That stretch of 17th Street is Union Square North so it's not hard to find.

The store on Fifth Avenue/18th Street is considered the main store of the chain from which one can order any book and have shipped it to them worldwide.

The Fifth Avenue/18th Street does have a large selection of books that are NOT textbooks.
