NYC Bookshop NOT Closed

This is just a note to all NYC-area bookworms who were alarmed by earlier conjecture on these boards about the possible closing of the Academy Used Book Store in the Flatiron district.

I was down on West 18th Street yesterday, and am delighted to announce that they’re only closed temporarily (for inventory).

I peeked in between the steel slats and was relieved to find that it’s as crowded with Literary Product as it ever was. And the used CD/record annex next door is open even as we speak.



[would have made brow-wiping motion of relief, but that would have implied that ladies perspired]
