Book fiends (or even those who have casually skimmed one or two) shouldn’t miss New York’s most loved and famous bookstore. In operation since 1927, the Strand sells new, used and rare titles, spreading an incredible 18 miles of books (over 2.5 million of them) among three labyrinthine floors.

Check out titles in foreign languages in the basement and browse eye-catching merchandise (iPhone covers, tote bags, paratrooper messenger bags). Or sell off your own tomes before you get back on the plane – the Strand buys or trades books at a side counter Monday through Saturday.
