NYC - The Official Guide

Spoonbill & Sugartown


This shop is Williamsburg’s artsy alternative to big chain bookstores. Much of the stock is devoted to used and new tomes on art, architecture and design; the selection of coffee-table books is especially impressive. A table near the Williamsburg Mini Mall entrance boasts a variety of hipster-friendly authors (David Foster Wallace, Jonathan Lethem); the magazine racks, likewise, are loaded with cool indie titles (The Believer). You can also bring in books to sell back for cash or for trade; the store determines each item’s resell value based on the title of the book and its condition.
