This book store was in existence for about 5 minutes. I was inside a couple of times; very nice.
The Strand is still going strong today.
I used to take classes at the International Center of Photography in NYC when it was on 96th Street and 5th Avenue. I would sometime travel by bus (probably the 2nd Avenue bus) and walk across to the classroom. This book store mainly carried books for kids, but I liked the atmosphere.
This book store was on 81st Street on Lexington (I think). I searched for whether it is still around and found that it went out of business in 1995.
Moving uptown, this book store was on the same block as the Whitney Museum of Art (assuming it is still around 75th and Madison).
