34. BookCulture


BookCulture has been owned and operated by Chris Doeblin since 2007, in a Columbia University-owned space on 112th Street, after a previous life as Labyrinth Books which he co-owned since 1997. In 2009, BookCulture opened a second sop on Broadway at 114th Street, and in 2010, Annie Hedrick, who had worked at BookCulture since 2006, joined Chris as a co-owner of the two stores. Now they have a third shop, BookCulture on Columbus, located at 450 Columbus Avenue at 82nd Street. In addition to a wide variety of current best-sellers, you can also find course books, buybacks and a large selection of t-shirts and bags.
