Welcome to Left Bank Books, in its new Greenwich Village location at 41 Perry Street.
If you remember the old shop, which closed its doors in 2016 after nearly 25 years, you knew Left Bank Books as an old-school, neighborhood used bookshop.
If you’ve come to Left Bank Books online – what we’ve called Left Bank 2.0 – then you know a more focused version of the original, with an emphasis on used and rare books that speak to the culture in a fresh, sometimes irreverent way. We strongly identify with the artistic and cultural heritage of the Village, NYC’s “Left Bank,” and work everyday reimagining what a small, well-curated Village bookshop can be.
The new Left Bank (opened spring 2019) sits on a historic tree-lined block of Perry Street between West 4th Street and Waverly Place, surrounded by great shops, restaurants and performance spaces. The bookshop showcases our eclectic selection from the 20th and 21st centuries (and occasionally earlier), encompassing literature, art, film, photography, fashion, architecture, design, music, theater, dance, children’s books, and New York City. We host occasional events and exhibits, making us a destination for seasoned collectors, emerging enthusiasts, and curious newcomers the world over.
We hope you’ll visit regularly, follow our social media and sign up to our email list for updates and announcements.
