THE BRONX - As a major bookstore closes its doors in the Bronx, one woman wants to bring a new book store concept to the borough.

Noelle Santos is in the process of opening The Lit Bar in the South Bronx.

"We are a hybrid model of book store slash wine bar," she says.

The Lit Bar is in negotiations to open in 2017 in the Hunts Point section of the Bronx.

Santos says it is currently appearing as a pop-up store at the Bronx Museum Holiday Market.
