Bank Street Bookstore will say goodbye to its current location at 112th and Broadway in March 2014. The new location is at 107th and Broadway.
Two and a half years ago I was selected to replace Bank Street Bookstore's irreplaceable longtime manager, Beth Puffer. My task was to help save the bookstore from closure after years of rent increases had eroded its sustainability. Today I am delighted to report that a new storefront on the corner of 107th Street and Broadway has been secured -- at a dramatically reduced rent. The Bank Street Board of Trustees and our new president Shael Polakow-Suransky, have arranged for the bookstore to move there early next year. Bank Street Bookstore will continue, with your support, to serve you for many years to come. Here is a link to the College's official announcement of Bank Street Bookstore’s move and to yesterday’s article featuring Bank Street Bookstore in The New York Times.
Best, Andy Laties
