New York City has a large population of francophiles and many tourists from

This is especially true in Soho, Greenwich Village, and the Upper East
Side.  The following stand out:

Very large selection of books in French and Spanish, from the sublime to

newspapers.  Dictionaries of all type and description, e.g., technical,
business, pictoral, and french to other languages than english.  There are
more dictionaries at the 19th St. store.  Fairly expensive.  Staff is
helpful and usually speak French (or Spanish).

America, this is the store for you.  If you don't see it, ask: many

they arrive.
