Housing Works Bookstore Café

with 2 comments

Som en liten lugn oas i det annars hektiska Soho ligger Housings Works Bookstore Café (126 Crosby Street), ett vackert bokkafé där intäkterna går till att bekämpa aids och hemlöshet. Köp billigt fika och bläddra i de begagnade böckerna, fynda en julklapp eller bara andas en stund. Tydligen brukar de anordna fester, författarkvällar och konserter, så håll lite koll på öppettiderna.

ENGLISH: Like a small oasis in the midst of the hectic Soho area you find Housings Works Bookstore Café (126 Crosby Street), a beautiful book café that fights aids and homelessness. Sit down with some cheap coffee and a used book, find a bargain christmas present or just breath for a little while. They also organize parties, readings and music events, so sometimes they close early.

  1. oh, i just love housing works!!! it’s my favorite used books store in the city. i mean yeah, Strand can have it all, but it doesn’t have the same cozy, homey and friendly atmosphere as housing works – by a long shot! and they have such yummy treats too! and i guess it can be a bit of a cruising spot too if that’s what you’re in the mood for.
