Brownstone Books Closes Its Doors


A tipster sent along the news that Bed Stuy’s Brownstone Books has closed. “They are a few storefronts down from Bread Stuy on Lewis, which was in danger of closing because of unpaid back taxes, but then a party kept the doors open,” she tells us. “The book store had a lot of community events over the years, and every time I went to visit in the past year or two, the shelves were not full, which could mean they had limited funds to stock inventory.” The bookstore, at 409 Lewis Ave., has been in the neighborhood for ten years. Sad indeed. GMAP
