movie locations: Rizzoli's

Being able to spend time in New York is always a dream, but like a total nerd, visiting New York around Christmas meant there was a certain store I just had to visit: Rizzoli bookstore.

Angelo Rizzoli was a big-time publisher and movie producer who worked on 8 1/2 and La Dolce Vita with Fellini. In 1964 he opened Rizzoli International Bookstore in Manhattan and it's been featured in numerous films, most notably Falling In Love (starring Meryl Streep and Robert DeNiro) and Woody Allen's Manhattan.

Sadly, meeting my own Robert DeNiro (so dashing in his trench) to start an adulterous affair wasn't on the cards this December: the store was so quiet, accidentally swapping coffee table books on sailing and gardening was not a possibility.

Looking to buy a picture book or sailing or gardening like Meryl and Bob? Hit up Rizzoli's at 31 West 57th Street.
