A Great Bookstore Makes a Move


St. Mark’s Bookshop picks a new neighborhood

I love it when people don’t give up. Especially when the trends are trending against them.

St. Mark’s Bookshop, the legendary intelligent store, on 9th Street and Third Avenue, for reasons of rent, is
moving further east to 136 East 3rd Street, a few storefronts west of Avenue A. I walked past the space a week ago. There was no sign up yet. The door was open so carpenters could go in and out. It’s a smaller space. But that will make for a good fit in that neighborhood. You probably don’t get down there often. It’s a cool part of town. Some part of you will wish you lived there. Go there to see the store. It’ll open any day, or may have already by the time you read this.

How great for the street, a famous bookstore. My street doesn’t have one.
