It's like traveling back in time. I love this place so much. I'm a college student and just came to Pittsburgh, and on a tour of South Side noticed it. I came back and fell in love immediately. It has mostly old books, which I personally love. Don't be afraid to go upstairs, that's where that first rate Philosphy section is. Bags must be checked to up upstairs (meaning you put them on the cashier's counter). There are tables and chairs upstairs if you wanted to read a book before purchasing. Prices of books are pencilled in on the first page. Be aware that they require cash for all purchases under $10. They also have a few VHS tapes and vinyl records.

I've been a fan of City Books forever and simply put, it is my favorite bookstore in Pittsburgh. Their philosophy section is first rate. Great atmosphere too!
