Hole in the wall with the best selection
A good selection. Good for "digging". More likely to have bargains than the Strand.
Bibliophiles come to Mercer Street Books for out-of-print editions, rare hardcovers and a stroll down literary memory lane.
Good non-pretentious collection of secondhand books with decent price. No minimum amount for credit card payment.
Support this shop!
Solid, interesting music playing overhead (as opposed to dead silence at some other places...) and better book selection than I've found at other downtown bookshops. Great jazz record selection.

This place is just amazing for me. All kinds of interesting and weird stuff
Great used vinyl section.
An old favorite for serendipitous used art book finds. Plus the late hours are great... Til midnight on Fri/Sat & "Sometimes Later."
City secret: This is one of NYCs best used-book stores. Less picked-over than the Strand & better selection than the others (but not nearly as charming as Housing Works). Also great for old jazz LPs.
you can find some great books here. the prices are also alright. the staff isn't too friendly though. they're frumpy and grumble a lot.
