STRAND BOOKSTORE
PHOTOS MAPS STREET VIEW

The Strand opened in 1927 on Book Row in the East Village. Of the 48 shops located there at the time, only the Strand remains—the city’s largest independent bookstore today. This book lovers’ paradise rightly advertises with the slogan “18 Miles of Books.” An enormous selection of literature fills floor-to-ceiling shelves on four floors. Collectors come here for rare editions, art books, and antiquarian volumes.
