St. Mark’s Bookshop is just the latest small business victim of rising rents, along with our growing tendency to read books on tablets, instead of on paper. It’s also yet another signal that this gritty East Village neighborhood is changing, too.
Everything is on sale at $2, cash only, today and tomorrow.
On it’s website, the St. Mark’s Bookshop. St. Mark’s Bookshop thanks us all for our patronage.
St. Mark’s Bookshop was established in 1977 in New York City’s East Village, a community of students, academics, artists, and other discerning readers. Our specialties include Cultural Theory, Graphic Design, Poetry & Small Press Publishing, Film Studies, and Foreign & Domestic Periodicals and Journals. We are open Monday through Saturday from 11 am until 11 pm, and from noon until 10 on Sunday.
St.Mark’s Bookshop is at 136 East 3rd Street just west of Avenue A, in the historic First Houses building. Take the F train at the 2nd Ave station (closer to the 1st Avenue exit), the M14A Select Service Bus on A, and the M15 on 1st Ave.
Make it a daytrip and enjoy the neighborhood, which includes the theaters of East 4th Street, , vintage clothing stores, designer boutiques, import shops, gift and specialty shops, as well as dozens of cafes, restaurants and bars.
