Strand Bookstore

You never know who you'll see in this iconic bookstore.

by Catherine Hamilton

Originally located in East Village section of Manhattan, Strand Bookstore opened two additional Kiosks in Central Park and Times Square. The store prides itself on its the wide and diverse collections of new and used rare and out of print books. With around 240 employees at this bookstore, the New York Times dubbed the store as the “undisputed king of the city’s independent bookstores.” The bookstore also appears in any popular movies and shows set in New York.
