Features
Historic

This beloved shop is a necessary stop for book lovers and anyone interested in the glory days of the East Village. After struggling for its survival when the rent rose on its original Third Avenue location, the bookshop moved to East 3rd Street. There really is nothing like it (which is why it was worth saving); the neighborhood institution offers a little bit of everything, including many titles you won’t find at chain bookstores—extensive poetry and small press offerings, critical theory books, art and photography tomes—along with a strong sense of community.
