Dane Neller, CEO of Shakespeare & Co., an independently owned bookstore with two locations in NYC, including one at 69th and Broadway, confirmed that he is looking at the space formerly occupied by Book Culture on Columbus, presumably to open another Shakespeare & Co. The space is located between 81st and 82nd Streets.
“I can confirm that we are looking at the space,” Neller texted WSR.
That is all he would say, and Tim Quinlan of Walker Malloy, the landlord, previously said that he doesn’t discuss ongoing negotiations.
So, we turned to the bard himself, William Shakespeare, who had something to say for every occasion.
“The miserable have no other medicine, but only hope,” he wrote in Measure for Measure.
After the week we’ve had — between Book Culture and Fairway — it seems fitting.
