My Favorite Bookstore in NYC

WHERE do I go for my Design & Art books in NYC?

My favorite bookstore in Manhattan is Rizzoli. Located on W 57 just off 5th Avenue. It is a 3-story former townhouse space with panels millwork cases, decorative ceilings and candelabrum light fixture; one would feel like walking into a different world.

Look at the details of the ceiling ...

This bookstore has a most-notable collections devoted to architecture, fashion, art and foreign language. Often one can hear foreign music plays in the background while flipping through those glossy book pages.
