“Shakespeare & Co is a beautiful NY book store, specializing in student text books.”

Shakespeare & Co - New York

I would recommend Shakespeare & Co. Booksellers, Lexington AV, New York, NY.

A small wonderful bookstore with excellent staff. Wonderful little table area with coffee and lots of great fresh treats. Selection of books leaves nothing to be desired.

~Brenda Moskovic


This independent bookstore in New York stocks a large range of books on two floors. they also stock a large range of fiction novels. In order to appeal to local students the store stocks academic textbooks for students, which can be bought or sold during different parts of the semester.

The bookshop also offers printing in-store using their Espresso Book Machine (EBM), which can be used for; self-publishing, private projects or even to print any of the 7 million titles they have in their print catalogue (for more on this in-store printing see the brochure on their website.)

As well as the large selection of books to peruse, the bookshop also has a small café. Here you can sit in a comfortable chair, with a hot drink, a good book and even something to eat of their café menu, which includes; cakes, pastries, sandwiches and soup.
