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 change.org asking Prestige Properties to keep the store open. She says it has over a thousand signatures so far.
