This is a bookstore unlike any bookstore I’ve ever been to.
When you think of a bookstore, or an old time library, and you think of it romantically, with a lot of charm and dark wood, dim lighting and an old fireplace, I have to imagine this is about as close to your vision as you’re ever going to get.
Housing Works is perfect for the used books lover. And in the back, next to a cute coffee shop that makes excellent cappuccinos, there’s an area to sit and read, or, when there’s an event and the tables and chairs are pushed to the side, an area to watch adoringly as your favorite author describes what their book means to them.
Complete with ladders and balconies, the hustle and bustle of the city that never sleeps, I’m madly in love with Housing Works.
