Rizzoli bookstore to open just north of Madison Square Park

rizzoli nomadIn a reversal of the trend towards shutting down bookstores, a Rizzoli bookstore is set to open next year at 1133 Broadway (between 25th and 26th Street) just northwest of Madison Square Park. They will have 5,000 square feet of street level retail space for their curated selection of books. The store will add a sophisticated and intellectual cornerstone to a stretch of Broadway which begins the Nomad neighborhood. If you appreciate the opening of a real bookstore, be sure to stop by when they are open, and by a book or two there even if it is ‘easier’ to by online.

From CEO Laura Donnini of the parent company, “For fifty-plus years the Rizzoli bookstore in New York City has attracted the discerning consumer of erudite, beautifully produced volumes on art, design, interiors, fashion, as well as literature, and important non-fiction books. Based on extensive market research in advance of the re-opening, we expect this customer—both New York-based, and visiting from all points national and international—to embrace the 21st century version of their favorite bookstore.”

Rizzoli opened its first New York City store in 1964 on 55th Street. Learn more at
