Village Voice's Description

In 1927 the Strand first opened its doors. It moved to 12th and Broadway over 25 years later, and there it has remained. The store is a true maze, with books strewn here and there and some sections impossible to find. There is almost no reason to even shop here. Absorbing the ambience is like understanding how a New Yorker lives. But buying things is always nice.

    just wanted everyone to know, burlesque legend Jo "Boobs" Weldon, the burlesque Mayor of New York Jonny Porkpie, and the delicious and scintillating Mary Cyn will be joined by an All-Star cavalcade of dangerous dolls and very bad man.

    Before you wrinkle your nose at this unconditioned used book store, take a look around. You just might find a literary loving intellectual like D (Don’t You Forget About Me)

    This over-80-year-old establishment houses thousands of discounted new and used titles, rare books, and hard-to-find art and photography books. A total classic. [Racked 38 Member]

    Kindle e-books are now outselling hardcovers. Go old school. Step away from your Kindle and buy a $1 book on the sidewalk. You'll feel like a kid again. - Erica Swallow

  • Travel Channel on 11/15/11

    This store boasts 18-miles of books. As recommended by Travel Channel host, Anthony Bourdain.

  • The New Yorker on 02/15/11

    Books-by-the-Foot service provides ready-made libraries. “Bargain books,” a random selection of hardbacks, is the cheapest, at ten dollars a foot. For thirty dollars, clients can customize the color.
