3. Rizzoli Bookstore
While New Yorker’s mourned the loss of the 31 West 57th Street location, Rizzoli Bookstore was hard at work, piecing together their new shop in the shadow of the Flatiron building, which opened this past July. Rizzoli’s brought along many of the classic fixtures, all preserved, including the cherry wood bookcases and chandeliers. The new shop is a 5,000 square foot space on the ground floor of the historic St. James building. Specializing in fashion, interior design, architecture and the arts, Rizzoli is well on their way toward the completion of the last two rooms of the new store, located at 1133 Broadway. When you go, be sure to take notice of their Fornasetti designed murals.
