The Strand Review
Opened in 1927, and still run by the same family, this monstrous book emporium—home to 2 million volumes and "18 Miles of Books"—is a symbol of a bygone era, a mecca for serious bibliophiles, and a local institution. The store has survived the Great Depression, World War II, competition from Barnes & Noble, and the tremendous shift in how readers are consuming literature. The stock includes both new and secondhand books, plus thousands of collector's items. A separate rare-book room is on the third floor and closes at 6:20 daily. The basement has discounted, barely touched reviewers' copies of new books, organized by author. If you're looking for souvenirs, visit the New York section of the bookstore; you'll find New York–centric literature, poetry, history, photography, and cookbooks, as well as T-shirts, gadgets, and totes.
