Housing Works Bookstore Cafe

126 Crosby St.
Manhattan, NY 10012


Housing Works Bookstore Cafe is one of downtown New York's most vital cultural institutions, presenting an eclectic mix of events featuring many of today's most exciting artists. The bookstore is staffed almost entirely by volunteers, and 100% of profits go to Housing Works, Inc., which provides housing, healthcare, job training and advocacy for New Yorkers living with HIV/AIDS. As an independent cultural center, it offers patrons a unique opportunity to join the fight against AIDS and homelessness simply by buying or donating books; eating at the cafe; attending concerts, readings and special events; or volunteering on the staff.
