Book Culture is everything a bookworm would want and more in a bookshop
When people think about amazing places to visit in NYC, the first thought is usually Manhattan. Manhattan is great! There’s so much to do there! But I’m a Queens borough gal. Always have been. So it’s only right that I take the time to rave about one of my absolute favorite bookshops in Long Island City: Book Culture.
Ambiance: As soon as you walk through the door there’s a wall of sale items begging you to take them home. The store is sectioned by genre with new and notable reads in the front. The other genres have a place among many of their tall walls. It’s certainly a photogenic space – there’s a large skylight coming in from the middle of the shop which feels so inviting, and there’s a bunch of diverse displays to cater to a diverse audience. With the large amount of books and merchandise, you can easily get lost in here for some time.
