Difficult to find what you want. While it has its own charm it is more crooked than straight these days.

If you happen to live in Kolkata, and are crazy about books, chances are that you have visited College Street hunting for one book or the other at some point of your life. Mention any book, chances are that you will get it here. Apart from the rows of shops selling the latest publications, there are also some shops selling exclusively second hand books, which may not be published anymore. Some of the well known publishing houses have their flagship stores right here.

Since it becomes very crowded on week days, visiting this place on a Saturday could be a better idea.

If you want to feal the real heart throb of calcutta (Kolkata) then this is the place. The place is gloriously surviving with tram cars ,handpulled rickshaws in harmony with proximity to metro(Central). The environment is busy with the studious people from Calcutta University,presidency College,Sanskrit College,Calcutta medical College ,Hindu school,Hare school and many more. both sides of the road is filled by book vendors with there huge collection of new and old books.The upcoming Bornoporichoy mall is latest addition to it. But to put the signature of the intellectual calcutta there lies Coffe House, a place where bengali ADDA is defined and typified. Within this hotspot of Iq lies a cool place college square .Where a number of Sweeming Clubs are raising the budding bulas and mihirs
