57th Street Books

Books in Hyde Park & South Side

A serious university demands a serious bookstore, and as you descend the stairs to this basement-level shop you’ll know you’re in the right place. Its labyrinth of low-slung rooms makes up the kind of old-fashioned bookstore that goes way deeper than the popular titles. It has excellent staff picks. Seminary Co-op Bookstore is its sister shop selling academic tomes.
