    In case of wretched lines on the ground floor, try the two checkout registers in the basement.

    Strand's enduring eclecticism shines near the information desk, where John Mayer's "Paradise Valley" rubs shoulders with "Koch."

    Overall very good books. But the prices aren't that different from market prices. Maybe 1-2$ off.

    Order your books on the website & pick them up in store the next day. Wayyy easier than trying to find something yourself.

    Heard about this bookstore from someone in the magazine biz, so if you're any kind of bibliophile, it's three floors of bliss mixed with the library feel.

    They didn't have what I wanted but definitely had what I needed for goddaughter gifts. Plus, how can you not love the smell of old books?
