Off-the-beaten path Chelsea bookstore with a small but well-curated selection of books for the thinking reader, plus a large children's section. – In Short
Whether this bookshop's collection is well-edited due to discerning taste or the limited amount space is beside the point; the exceptional selection is small, surprising and always stimulating. The store specializes in translations, which take up a table near the front window, and also stocks a sizeable selection of art and children's books. Literature, graphic novels, biographies, cookbooks fill out the store's offerings. The space is calm and inviting with hardwood floors and art on loan from the Paula Cooper gallery adorning the clean white walls.
No bland bestsellers here, just interesting selections from the store's staff, who will gladly discuss potential purchases with you.
The bookstore's small space and very limited seating means browsing while sitting is not likely.
