Dashwood Books, Noho, Manhattan
Dashwood Books opened in 2005 and they describe themselves as "New York City’s only independent bookstore devoted entirely to photography." If you sneeze walking down Bond Street you might not even notice that they exist and you'd be missing out on a very special store. They are downstairs a few steps.
Dashwood specializes in contemporary photography books that you are not likely to find in other bookstores. Their selection includes "books that have no or very limited distribution in the United States including limited press runs from Japan, Germany and The Netherlands; artists self-published books, signed books and a carefully curated selection of collectible post-war titles."
I highly suggest this bookstore and it is inspiring to see that they are able to survive in the city. They are closed on Mondays and open at noon on other days.
