We are a bookstore located just three blocks north of Madison Square Park and steps away from myriad cultural destinations. Our 5,000 square foot space occupies the ground-floor level of the historic St. James Building, dating back to the early 19th century. The bookstore boasts an imposing 18' tall by 34' wide glass façade that showcases the interior's eighteen-foot ceilings, a dramatic peaked skylight, and an expansive windowed salon entered via an striking red mullioned pivot door. Fixtures include cherry wood bookcases and grand brass and iron chandeliers. Our wallpaper was designed exclusively for us by Fornasetti Milano. The designs run as a frieze above the bookcases to the ceiling in all three grand rooms of the store, and feature surreal motifs of Italian cities floating in the clouds, hot air balloons, Zodiac figures and the classic Fornasetti collage of newspaper fragments overlaid with colorful butterflies. The bookstore is available for a wide range of private events, including book parties, cocktail receptions, seated dinners, press events, film & photo shoots, and more. The elegant and airy Salon, our main event space, can accommodate 150-200 people, depending on configuration. The adjacent Skylight Room may also be rented if more space is needed. The bookstore is also available for a full buyout and can accommodate 300-400 guests.

Dear friends and colleagues, Along with the rest of New York, our team has been working from home since mid-March. It has been an incredibly trying time for our community and we know first hand that the production and event industries have been hit uncommonly hard by the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak. While we have not been able to be onsite in the studios, we are looking forward to getting back to work as soon as we are able to in the safest manner possible. In order to make sure that we are operating our studios in a safe and healthful manner for our returning clients we are making a few necessary improvements and updates. - Additional hand washing stations are being installed in each studio. - All sinks (kitchens and bathrooms) will be retrofit with contactless faucets. - Increased wifi bandwidth will be available, up to 10 Gbps for remote videoconferencing needs for both events and productions. - Daily intensive cleanings of both studios. We know that we may not be getting back to any kind of a normal schedule anytime soon, but we are focused on serving you, our community, as best we can when given the opportunity. A massive thank you to all the essential workers on the front lines. Stay safe, stay healthy and we hope too see you back at the studio soon. Our original premier event space, is perfect for film and photo shoots, corporate and culinary events, private parties and elegant weddings.
