McNally Jackson Books is here to stay! The Little Italy bookstore was almost forced out due to rent increases and was expected to move to a new location in June. Fortunately, plans have changed.
A leasing banner was hung from McNally Jackson’s entrance only three months ago and it looked as though the bookstore’s fourteen-year-long stay was coming to an end. It was just last week that customers learned of the store’s new plans to remain at its Prince Street location. Bowery Boogie even confirmed the news with an employee.

Sarah McNally originally opened the store in 2004 as part of her family’s McNally Robinson chain. It later became an independent shop when she partnered with her husband and now has a cafe and in-house printing press among its many attractions.
