THREE LIVES AND COMPANY

154 West 10th Street, New York, NY, USA
back to list

One of the last bastions of old New York bookstores, Three Lives & Co. wear their mission statement proudly: “We exist for the reader, not the publisher, nor the marketer.” Take one step inside the diminutive store and you’ll find this to be immediately evident. The store has succeeded in surviving in a climate when competitors have dropped like flies, and that’s mostly because it hasn’t changed a lick since its doors opened in 1968. Inside Three Lives you won’t find big displays, overstocked bestsellers, or even discount stickers slapped carelessly on the covers of pulpy novellas, instead you’ll be greeted collection of books hand-curated by the staff, each arranged with its cover facing out, creating a mosaic tile wall of cover art that sucks the casual browser in. Pop in when you can, they are as knowledgeable as they are happy to see you.
