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.

As lovers of fine literature--and even some trash--are aware, Strand Book Store has shelves upon shelves of extra-discounted books stationed all around its exterior.
