Browsing through Books, on Broadway

Broadway booksellers, NYC
Photo by myself around 73rd Street and Broadway, on the Upper West Side.

Broadway in West 70s is lined with tables loaded with books and vinyl. It's a nice place to browse for reading material if you have the time.

Imagine transporting all those books back and forth and watching for rain! That is real dedication.

I absolutely love that there are so many street vendors in New York, Kitty, and that they obviously have their whole street commerce thing figured out. I've bought socks from a sock guy on the Upper West Side on a number of visits. He very much operates his business as a business, a tiny retail store atop an oversized folding table.

Hi RedPat,
Good point! The setting up of the books takes a long time. I think though these vendors are more like collectors. They are dedicated.

Hi Terry,

Ha, beware of the sock guys. You probably found a good one, but Mark got some socks off the street and they shrunk into tiny things.

Yes, it's very cool how each person specializes. There are a couple guys in Astor Place and Soho who just sell beautiful art books. One of my friends will save his hard earned cash and venture to these fellows once in a blue moon.
