Upper West Side's Beloved Westsider Rare and Used Books Closing After 35 Years

The beloved neighborhood shop Westsider Rare & Used Books on Broadway and 80th will unfortunately close after 35 years in business. It is another example of how rising rents make it nearly impossible for mom-and-pop stores to stay in business in Manhattan. Until the shop closes for the last time at the end of February, enjoy steep discounts on all items as they attempt to liquidate inventory.

After 35 years on Manhattan's Upper West Side, the neighborhood's beloved Westsider Rare & Used Books store has entered its final chapter. The store will close at the end of February and the news is breaking the hearts of the neighborhood's avid readers who love the store's wide selection and welcoming atmosphere.
