It is a lovely bookstore with a great variety of books, gifts, and souvenirs. It us located at Chelsea Market (a must see in NYC!) and from there yoi can easily go to the High Line Park - a great leisure program! I specially liked the quotes magnets - wanted them all!!

This book in the Grand Central Terminal is in a really handy location. Like all great book shops, they have an interesting selection of many titles and some beautiful items that would appeal to tourists looking for something special to take home with them. I bought a magnificent 'New Yorker' calendar with wonderful illustrations. The staff are really helpful and... More

First off, I agree with the other reviewers that the help was terrible. I was perusing one of the displays and one of the employees put a stack of books on the floor right next to me. I didn't see him and nearly fell over, knocking over his books. He said nothing. I even picked the books up because it... More

this bookstore is way overpriced, the help is pretentious and they NEVER have what you're looking for. If not for last minute shoppers there would be no need for posman books.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
