NYC Mystery Bookstores

In this week's New York Magazine, readers will find a variety of "Best Of" lists in regards to great independent NYC stores across many spectrums, one of which is literature. For whatever reason, the article neglected to include two fantastic mystery bookstores in Manhattan (I'm saddened to not be able to include the Black Orchid on this list). Ignoring them is ignoring the wonderful diversity of New York bookstores.

If you live in New York, are traveling to New York, or are in need of a good recommendation from booksellers who know crime literature better than you know the back of your hand, please visit them in person or on the web. Both have massive selections of new releases, backlist titles, foreign editions and rare first editions, and you can place special orders with both. Do the book lover on your shopping list a favor and give these stores a ring:

44 Greenwich Avenue
New York, NY 10011
(212) 243-0440

58 Warren Street
New York, NY 10007
(212) 587-1011
