College street - I have spent 10 years of my life here, the kind of book lover I am, God arranged my schooling here - from Hindu school. Beside Hindu school, you have Hare school, Presidency college, Medical college, Calcutta university, IISWBM .. so many education institutes located here. College street is one of the biggest book markets in the Asia - whether it is the book for primary school or medicine or story books or rare old books, you will find everything here. And yes, if you want to spent time with your friends you have "Indian Coffee House" with reach heritage.

If you like the old kolkata, from where the actual nabajagaron started its a must visit place. book shops everywhere aligning with some of the moist famous and prestigious schools and colleges and the juggernaut Calcutta University. either walk the road or take a tram ride.

If you just love books and are in kolkata you have to visit college street. You can buy a huge range of books here. The price depends on your ability to bargain!

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