Partners & Crime Mystery Booksellers, an independent bookstore in the West Village in New York City, is closing after 18 years.
The bookstore hosted many great literary events, including a series dedicated to the art of radio dramas. All readers should check out the bookstore’s Top 100, a collection of classic recommended books. Do you have a favorite memory of the store? The booksellers broke the sad news on Facebook:
After 18 years in the shop on Greenwich Avenue, Partners & Crime Mystery Booksellers is closing its doors on September 20th. We’ve had a great run and have enjoyed helping a generation of readers find the books they love. We’ve had a lot of fun, learned a tremendous amount, and enjoyed our time with all of you – customers, authors and publishers. Stop by, reminisce and check out out our THANK YOU sale — and maybe find that favorite title you really can’t live without! Couldn’t have done it without you! With our great appreciation to all and a special thank you to our landlord, who has been a prince! (Via Sarah Weinman & Ellen Clair Lamb)
The Bookman was saddened by this story having been a long-time admirer of the store and a regular customer whenever visiting NYC.
