“I can get lost in books for hours. Taking notes about everything. The new NYU bookstore, that’s like paradise for me. There’s even coffee!” says Rachel, class of 2013. Rachel is the model on all of the new bookstore’s advertisements (seen above). The flyer also says that she’s a poet and dreamer, so I’m going to have to agree with her. I mean, she’s a dreamer, right? I think that makes her credible enough.
After only a few months of construction, the shiny huge bookstore opened its doors today at 726 Broadway. The space is humongous and dwarfs the former store in size and appearance. There’s way more apparel (some ridiculous pictures, to follow) on sale, especially for girls. The textbooks are way more spread out in even aisles instead of the underground labyrinth that they were formerly housed in. Pics after the jump.
The bookstore is massive and very modern. It’s worth checking out this week because they’re running a couple of special opening sales. Right now you can get 20% off all clothing and books. Some sweatshirts are marked off at $18.31 (NYU’s founding date). There’s a buy-one-get-one-free offer on select t-shirts. Most importantly though, there’s a raffle to win an iPad (NYU’s new go-to raffle item). I think it’s great that NYU now has a nice bookstore and I can’t wait to drop loads of cash on my books there.
