NEW YORK (Reuters) - Looking for a New Year's Eve date? Check under fiction at your local bookstore. According to a survey of 1,003 New Yorkers aged 25 to 35 released by American Express on Wednesday, the bookstore chain Barnes & Noble has the best singles scene in the city.
Barnes & Noble spokeswoman Mary Ellen Keating said she was not surprised. "We've actually had requests from people who have met in our stores ... asking if they could be married in our stores," she said. The chain has hosted a number of weddings, she added.
