The Bronx’ most child-friendly place just got friendlier!  

A new children's bookstore, The Page Turner, has opened in Riverdale at 490 West 238th Street, which is where Someplace Special Haircuts and Toys for Kids has been for the past eight years.  But not to worry, Someplace Special is still there, too!

“This is a great development,” said Suzanne.  “Children and their parents will now be able to come to one place for haircuts, toys, and now their favorite books!”

“Our new children’s book store is in a place that families are already comfortable,” said Ari Norberto, who with her husband, Ray, are Riverdaleans who will be owners and operators of the new book store.

Picture books, classic picture books, the most recent releases, a lot of series, books for teens, and essentially any and everything that young people like to read are available at The Page Turner. 

“To be sure, any book requested that’s not in stock, we can get in real quick!” said Ray Norberto.

For information about the new bookstore call Ray Norberto at 646-327-1903 or email The Page Turner

Someplace Special is a fun place for children to get haircuts.  They can sit in red, jeeps and watch video games during their haircut and there also is a Thomas-the-Tank Engine play table to play on.  For information or appointments call 718-432-6622 or email  Someplace Special.  The store’s hours are 10am-6pm Wednesday through Saturday, and 11am-5pm on Sunday.  Check out Someplace Special's website right here!
