St. Marks Bookshop
This indie bookshop lends an air of lower east side grunge and sophistication with its shelves stockpiled with political literature, academic journals, poetry, and new nonfiction and novels. It also offers a varied (and good) collection of travel guides, magazines, and cookbooks.
