A Visit to the Fountain Pen Hospital Is the Write Stuff for Your Mind

A salesman at The Fountain Pen Hospital in Lower Manhattan once described the appeal of the antiquated writing instruments to the New York Times:

“It slows you down. It makes you think about what you’re writing.”

Slow, quiet writing that doesn’t involve your thumbs on a tiny screen is something we could all use right now. According to the Fountain Pen Hospital (10 Warren Street), writing with a fountain pen isn’t just good for your brain. It’s a style statement. 

That’s why the tastefully unassuming storefront has remained a Lower Manhattan staple since its 1946 opening. The handsome shop is more museum than hospital, with thousands of fountain, rollerball and ballpoint pens behind glass cases, along with ink, notebooks and the know-how to repair anything

The shop is the perfect place to go for gifts, stylish accessories, creative inspiration or for whenever you just need to think about putting pen to paper.
