Singularity & Co opened on Thursday, August 9, 2012 at 18 Bridge Street in Dumbo. They are a sci-fi bookstore that not only collects and sells out of print, out of circulation, and rare sci-fi books, but also works to “digitally rescue” them by tracking down the copyright holder and/or author (if they’re still around), acquire or otherwise clear the copyright, and publish the title both online and as an e-book, for little or no cost. The Verge has a nice summary of the store and opening.

Singularity & Co. (singularityand.co)
18 Bridge Street, 1G, Brooklyn NY 11201
Open Wed-Sun 1pm-7pm (or by popular demand)
