Strand Kiosks







Reminiscent of the green wooden bouquinist stands that line the Left Bank in Paris, the Strand Kiosks at Central Park offer a nice selection of used & reduced-price new books to take strolling down the leafy colonnade of Poet's Lane, or on your rowboat in The Lake. The kiosks are open May through October, weather permitting. Plus: They even take credit cards, thanks to hand held machines also reminiscent of Paris restaurants.

Looking like in Paris!
but it seems to be more comfortable for the books sellers..;

These reminded me of the book vending machines at train stations. I know there are a lot of them here in London but I've, sadly, never been to New York so I'm not sure if you have them there?

Your blog is amazing.

No, we don't have the vending machines, but I wish we did! I've seen them in Paris & been very tempted to buy something just for the fun using the machine, but I don't speak much French, so I end up buying Kinder Bueno bars instead. I'll have to check them out in London!

The Strand kiosk is so much fun! It's so sad that the Annex lost its lease. I used to go there every day during my lunch hour and browse.
