The Best Stationery Stores for Adult Back-to-School Shopping

Whether you stock up in person or online, these are the stationery meccas you should visit this fall.

“Don’t you love New York in the fall? It makes me want to buy school supplies,” says Tom Hanks in the Nora Ephron classic "You’ve Got Mail." Here are the four stationery meccas we'd send him to in New York and beyond. If you can't make it to the brick-and-mortar store, you can always stock up online, something Hanks' tech-savvy character surely would have approved of -- online shopping just wasn't a thing yet!
