Want to see a real estate document from the 14th century? How about Abner Doubleday's original marriage certificate or a handwritten letter from George Washington . . . or a book so big and heavy that I couldn't even open it?

Take a break from Amazon and Walmart and check out my family's book store -- a VERY special place with countless books and other unusual treasures, including lots of baseball stuff. My grandfather started the business in 1925. It's called The Argosy, and it's the oldest independent book store in New York City.

The store is open Monday through Friday from 10am to 6pm, and in the colder months, it's also open on Saturday from 10am to 5pm. I might not be here (I've been busy lately with baseball and other work), but there's always plenty to see.


Thanks for Brandon Sloter for filming.
