It’s open! Book Culture, an actual real-live spanking-new bookstore just opened at 450 Columbus Avenue between 81st and 82nd street. The store opened Wednesday morning at 10 a.m. and plans to close at 8. It’s the first new bookstore on the Upper West Side in forever, give or take a few years.
So go in and check out the scene. It’s still got that new-pulp smell. Oh and try to buy something, because they need to make $3 million a year.
They’ll be holding a grand opening party on December 3 at 7 p.m.
