After closing Barnes & Nobles, only bookstore in the Bronx, Noëlle Santos saw an opportunity to spread her entrepreneurial wings. Now, this Bronxite has raised more than her campaign goal of $100,000.
“As soon as the campaign ends, I will get aggressive about finding a lease,” Santos told DNAInfo. “I’m still focusing my efforts on Hunts Point and Mott Haven, somewhere near a train where it’s nice and accessible.”
The “Let’s Bring A Goddamn Bookstore to The Bronx” campaign on IndieGoGo raised $109,419 with the help of donors such as Michael Moore, and Chris Hayes.
