The Strand Book Store has taken to social media to announce that they’ll soon be opening a new outpost on the Upper West Side!
The announcement states that the new space will be located between 81st and 82nd Street at 450 Columbus Avenue, taking over the empty space now left by Book Culture’s recent closure. The shop is planned to open in March and they’ve stated that not only is the Strand “thrilled to bring all of our Strand goodness to such a vibrant community,” but are “are proud to continue the literary legacy of the space, previously home to indie bookshops Endicott Books and Book Culture.”
The Strand Book Store owner, Nancy Bass Wyden, said in the statement:
“We are so excited to expand The Strand and engage the community of the Upper West Side. We aim to continue the legacy of my father, and his father before him, by bringing the joy of books to everyone.”
We can’t wait!
