St. Mark’s Bookshop to Close For Good

The St. Mark’s Bookshop will finally be closing its doors for good, after nearly forty years in the East Village, reports Daniel Maurer for Bedford and Bowery. The bookshop had moved to its East Third Street location, after pressure from its landlord, Cooper Union, led to a high-profile fundraising campaign.

“Memories, gratitude, and laments are already pouring in from commenters, some of whom have been browsing at the shop since it opened on St. Mark’s Place in 1977,” writes Maurer.
