Codex Books, East Village, Manhattan
Codex Books opened in January 2018 and they have a nice collection of literature and art books. They sell both new and gently used books and host book events. It is a very small bookstore and their inventory is highly curated. There is a cafe next door and there's an entrance to it through Codex. But they are two separate businesses. At the moment of this writing, directly across the street is the large street art mural of Debbie Harry and Blondie. They're open 7 days 10:00am-10:00pm.
