Strand Book Store

828 Broadway
Manhattan, NY 10003
Union Square


Strand Book Store, just off Union Square, has some impressive numbers: 18 miles of 2 million new and used books, at 50% off cover prices. And this New York treasure—open since 1927—sells every kind of book imaginable, from novels to memoirs to art books to historical tomes. For the true book nerds, a rare-book collection in a connected building contains those favorite dusty first editions.
