Watch: Bronx Residents Fight to Keep Local Barnes & Noble Open – NY1

Bronx residents are fighting to keep the last remaining general-interest book store in the borough from moving out.

The push started on Saturday when a 24-year-old graduate student heard that the Barnes & Noble near Bay Plaza Mall would close because of a rent dispute with its landlord.

Amelia Ziano started a petition on asking Prestige Properties to keep the store open. She says it has over a thousand signatures so far.
