St. Marks Bookshop Holding a Party to Celebrate Its Survival
The St. Marks Bookshop, which was in danger of closing because of landlord Cooper Union's high rents, was recently saved. Cooper and the bookstore finally came to an agreement to cut the monthly rent by $2500 and forgive $7,000 of the store's rent a few weeks ago. So for now, the independent local bookstore (that's been around since the late '70s) is safe.
And they're having a party to celebrate!
The Cooper Square Committee, the neighborhood group that led the charge to save the shop and started a petition that garnered over 40,000 signatures, will be throwing the party on December 1. It's from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the bookstore.
We'll be in attendance, if only to watch Dan Squadron tell stories about his marriage again.
