Today, at the Famous Used Bookstore, we were visited by a couple cops about an incident a few weeks ago since there's been a similar one nearby.[More:] One of our security guards caught some guy jerking off in the store (and chased him off). If he was in the art or photography section it would kind of make sense, but knowing this city, he was probably in engineering or botany.
You should find out what section he was in and let management know about uptick in public tastes.

That place is so unbelievable. And here I thought it was this nice stop of an afternoon in winter. Now I will forever see it as this grand stage where innumerable human dramas play out.

Don't think it's just a NY thing. My friend works in a Borders store in Melbourne and caught a 12 yo boy 'polishing his sword' in the kids section.

I worked in a B. Dalton bookstore in a suburb of New Orleans and the things we would see: a guy we called JC because he looked like Christ who would stand in front of the study aids section talking to himself then would leave; a 13 year old who tried to kiss our 34 year old manager and my favorite, the lady who came in a returned a romance book as sacrilgious because the protagonist masturbated with a cross.

Shit, I caught a guy jacking off in the Barnes and Noble up on 53rd and Lex. I remember being met with disbelief when I told folks about it.

Why bookstores?

Henry Miller.

I thought Henry Miller usually masturbated into a grey sweatsock on the old Graham Avenue line.

No, that was Barney Miller, on his way home from the 12th Precinct.

Sure it weren't some other Barney?

I've heard of book lovers before, but this is an extreme.
