  • We were fortunate to attend a wedding held at the Housing Works Book Cafe. I couldn't imagine how a wedding could be hosted in a working book cafe, but what a wonderful event it turned out to be...  more »
  • Good used book store and cafe. Plenty of space to grab a table and read, work, or have a cup of coffee. Great selection of books that is refreshed often.  more »

  • You’ll find a gem in this unique bookstore. They sell used reads in good condition, and you can stack up on some awesome books for relatively good prices. Also has a cafe with ample seating downstairs. There are few upstairs seats as well. I’ve noticed a handful of the homeless community tend to hang outside and occasionally inside as the location of the store is within proximity to a shelter/non-profit home. One of the coolest bookstores in downtown NYC for sure.
  • I think this is one of the best places in NYC. The selection of books is really excellent, there is a lot of turnover so there are more to choose from every time I go. The volunteers at the cafe are very friendly. The prices are very reasonable, and you are contributing to a good cause, so go often and buy a lot!
