Street Vendors- West Broadway






Here at the corner of Houston and West Broadway most Saturdays, the street vendors in these shots have been at it for for over 15 years, proving that it's not impossible to survive in New York doing what you love (at least for now). The selection is bookish and brainy with a wonderfully reliable selection of classics. The vendors are chatty, smart, and experienced, with plenty of observations on changing New York from the streets-eye view. They've even appeared in the documentary Book Wars. Plus: You're not far from Kiosk, you lucky person!

I seem to have missed these street vendors on my three visits to NYC. Next time I'll be sure to hunt them out.

Thanks for a great blog. I've really enjoyed reading your posts and checking out your pictures.

What a great idea for a blog. All of your blogs are so cleanly designed and so well curated. They are gems!
I love the Strand, Rizzoli,and the Biography bookshop across the street from Magnolia Bakery.

I've been looking (admittedly kind of half-assedly) for a way to find street vendors of books in NYC for a long time now. I finally came upon this site, and I just want to let you know, it's absolutely wonderful for a bibliophile like me. Beautiful pictures, beautiful venues. It makes me very, very happy to see all these places documented so well, and even happier to know that so many great independent book sites still exist.

Really nice place to find useful books in US. I enjoy reading books and many times go at half price book store.
