    Smell of old books, the balcony, people writing books and plays, a very diverse selection, a bustling café, a good cause—New York, this is your bookstore.

    This place is my happy save haven in Manhattan! The staff is INCREDIBLY nice, the proceeds go to charity, and you can find books for 50 cents! I COULD LIVE HERE. I LOVE IT.

    This wood-lined room at this place has floor-to-ceiling books, many for just a dollar. You can enjoy a beer or wine from its café while you devour your latest find in a bohemian, welcoming atmosphere. 続きを見る

    Local nonprofit bookstore cafe. Employees are volunteers & avid booklovers. Cafe hosts lectures, book clubs & is a popular venue for weddings. And there's always a basket of free condoms at checkout.

    With real estate prices so high, most coffee shops don't even have space to sit. Here's a great, old school bookstore with a tiny cafe and ample seating. Great to meet up or do a little work.

    One of the best used bookstores in NYC, and an all around comfortable, inviting space. The selection is usually on par with a "new" bookstore.

    Lots of great books from all different genres organized well. They also have lots of small tables you can sit and drink coffee from their cafe at and work or read

    Such a cozy and peaceful place. It’s more like a library with some drink options where you can work/study as they have wifi, or read books.

    The coffee is cheap and the upper level setting (if you can snag it) is cozy and quiet. Plus, post study time, treat yourself to some cool thrifty finds next door at the Housing Work Thrift Store.

    Being a New Yorker with the ever rushing lifestyle (for no particular reason) a bookstore like this is exactly what I need to mellow out. A very chill, calming environment to sip on a nice cup of java

    Come here for the eclectic selection of used books and relax in the back café with a delicious selection of teas, coffee and snacks. 100% of the profits go to ending AIDS and homelessness.

    This place is all about books and caffeine!! Lovely spot in SoHo. You can sit down and finish reading a book and nobody is gonna bother you! Perfect spot, if you wanna get some me time for yourself.

    Surprisingly, they serve a good and strong soy latte here for around $4. Deep, intense taste. Double roasted perhaps? Served in a pretty small tea cup and saucer. Get to browse used books too!

    Climb a rolling ladder and wheel through the two levels of vintage books or cozy up in the corner with a coffee and a page-turner. This Soho gem is the perfect spot to spend a cold winter day. —Tera

    Someone at a bookstore in New Orleans recommended this to me. Super hip events and a spiral staircase. Looking for something specific is hit-or-miss because books are donated. 続きを見る

    This shop maintains an amazing vibe while promoting good causes. It's staffed entirely by volunteers, and all profits go to a Housing Works, a nonprofit that fights homelessness and AIDS. 続きを見る

    They have consistently good coffee, and are always hosting amazing events and speakers, such as David Sedaris on 6/3. Get here early for big events though, the line stretches down the block.

    Great events most every night of the week. Catch an up-and-coming author book party or strike up a conversation with a HW volunteer. A great place to get a local taste of NYC.

    In SoHo, and cheap? Crazy. Check out the cheap used book carts. The bookstore can be busy, but it stays fairly calm. Staff are also very fun. Volunteer run!

    Would be a really nice place to take meetings; there's something relaxing about loads of books on shelves. Refreshments and food are only decent, but at least they're cheap! (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) 続きを見る

    A kinda-hidden gem of SoHo tucked away on a cobblestoned backstreet, a great bookstore with some must-try chai. So good, it just had to rhyme.

    Nice, quiet place to work. Wifi is great, but make sure you have a full battery charge on laptop: no outlets available. While you are there, buy a book for a great cause!

    Coffee, books, and a good cause? Yes! 100% of their proceeds go to Housing Works: a healing community dedicated to helping those affected by or living with HIV/AIDS.

    Great spot for studying or working, but just FYI you can't charge your phone or laptop here. They turned off the outlets to cut down on the electric bill!

    reat for discovering new books to try, but it's harder if you're looking for a specific book as their selection isn't the biggest

    Iced mocha is delicious. In the last few months, it's made in a new way that makes the chocolate taste much stronger. Definitely a plus.

    Feel good buying here b/c of the cause. Beautiful dark wood shelves and lots of cheap hidden gems in the books. Open up the covers and find that several are signed copies. Plus they host the Moth!

    A great spot for a coffee/tea and use of their free wifi (plus all proceeds go towards ending AIDS and homelessness). Steps away from SoHo shopping as well.
