Here’s some good independent bookstore news for NYC!
Tishman Speyer, the developer behind Rockefeller Center, announced earlier this summer that beloved NYC bookstore, McNally Jackson, will be opening a giant new flagship location in the iconic Midtown location, and it’s finally here! And it’s officially the largest McNally Jackson location in NYC.
The new store, which takes up about 7,000 square feet, has joined other recent new retail openings in the Rockefeller space, like Brooklyn-born record shop Rough Trade, Afro-centric shoe and accessories designer Armando Cabral, and clothing/paper flower shop Lingua Franca. Inside the bookstore, Shoppers and bookworms alike can find a full section of Goods For The Study stationery.
So while you’re still admiring the tree (up until January 14th), be sure to head over to 1 Rockefeller Plaza and explore the expansive space. And once you’ve scored a cozy new read, maybe stop for a glass at City Winery’s Rockefeller Center location and break the spine inside an enchanting igloo.
This new location is NYC’s fifth McNally Jackson, along with Soho, Williamsburg, Seaport, and downtown Brooklyn. Founded in 2004 by Sarah McNally, the bookstores quickly became beloved in the NYC literary scene and have been going strong for over 15 years.
