VIDEO: A Look Back At Rizzoli Bookstore

YouTube Channel: Rizzoli Books

From the Description:

Take a look back at Rizzoli Bookstore’s previous home for twenty-nine years on 57th Street in New York City. For nearly fifty years, New Yorkers and travelers from around the world have found at Rizzoli Bookstore a collection of books that always transcends expectations.

Established in New York in 1964, Rizzoli moved in 1985 to its present location — a six story townhouse exhibiting on its facade a sober classicism that belies the elegant interior within, where cast iron chandeliers, ornately decorated vaulting, and a luminous Diocletian window create a serene setting for book lovers amidst the rush of Midtown Manhattan.

Our collection of books is specialized in illustrated subjects — fashion, interior design, art, architecture, photography, design — and literature, in Italian, French, Spanish, and English. But all subjects of general interest are represented and we carry a selection of European magazines and newspapers. We also carry a fine selection of compact discs and DVDs, and our selection of notecards and stationery is a constant delight to our customers.

Rizzoli Bookstore is located at 31 West 57th Street, between 5th and 6th Avenues, in New York City.
