Bookstore Cafe

Bookstore Cafe

Housing Works Bookstore Cafe has established itself as a New York downtown institution and tourist destination for the last decade. 

Special events many nights of the week, an exceptional range of books, movies, and music, and a fully stocked cafe make this a great place to meet friends, relax, read, write, and shop!

Our one-of-a-kind space is available for rent, and we host weddings almost every weekend.

All of our stock is donated, and we are staffed almost entirely by volunteers, so 100% of our profits go to fund Housing Works' lifesaving services.
