Book Culture on Broadway
We’ve been awfully silent on this blog recently, but in real life we’ve been extra busy. Two weeks ago we opened the doors to Book Culture on Broadway, our new store on the corner of Broadway and 114th Street. This space has held an independent bookstore for the past 50 years and we are honored to be able to uphold that tradition and continue selling books right in the heart of Morningside Heights.
We’ve received a wonderfully warm response from people in the neighborhood who were sad to see the last bookstore here, Morningside Books, close in May. We opened up the space, exposing two additional windows and and creating a more accessible, modern floor plan. On the main floor we’re selling general fiction and non-fiction, focusing on bestsellers, award winners, books that haven recently been reviewed and other titles that we think will be of interest in our community. We have a dedicated mystery section as well as sections for cookbooks, graphic novels, home & craft, mind & body, and spirituality & religion. The downstairs space will open later this week and will feature children’s books and toys, science fiction, Spanish language and sale books.
We’ve assembled a team of smart, friendly booksellers who are prepared to find the books you need, make recommendations and wrap gifts. We’ve had a lot of fun together getting the store up and running and you can feel their dedication and excitement when you’re in the store.
Our store on 112th Street will remain essentially unchanged and will continue to carry all the wonderful university press titles, as well as featuring one of the most extensive literature sections around.
