Strand Bookstore

Originally located in the East Village neighbourhood of Manhattan, the Strand Bookstore has 18 miles worth of books, enough to keep the bookworm on-the-go enthralled and engrossed in wonderful literary works.

This cool, independent bookshop prides itself on a the wide and diverse collection of new and used, rare and ‘out of print’ books. The venue is also host to workshops, book events and even day-trips for lovers of the written word. This impressive literary establishment employs some 240 people, and the New York Times dubbed the establishment as the “undisputed king of the city’s independent bookstores.” It has also had a fair share of its '15 minutes of fame', with several appearances in popular American films and television shows. Across town, you'll also find two additional Kiosks in Central Park and Times Square. Grab a book and coffee to go, and read the time away on the grass or an ordinary bench.
