Village Voice's Description

Frequented by writers like Art Spiegelman and Rick Moody, this library-esque used bookstore (mahogany wood, spiral staircases, and a 40-foot-high ceiling) counterbalances its grandness with reasonable prices. Proceeds go to homeless New Yorkers with AIDS.

Tips from foursquare

  • Flavorpill NYC on 10/06/09

    There are fantastic musical, comedy (every Tues at 8:30; free!), and reading events, plus a little-known, but great, used-record selection.

  • The Corcoran Group on 10/08/10

    Come here for the eclectic selection of used books and relax in the back café with a delicious selection of teas, coffee and snacks. 100% of the profits go to ending AIDS and homelessness.

  • OMGICU on 03/21/11

    Bookstores are among the best places to see women who look like Janeane Garofalo. But at Housing Works you might actually see Janeane herself.

  • Nina Y. on 01/23/13

    If you can snag a table on the balcony, do it. Just walk up one of the staircases.

  • Ray L. on 01/22/13

    A kinda-hidden gem of SoHo tucked away on a cobblestoned backstreet, a great bookstore with some must-try chai. So good, it just had to rhyme.
