OHWOW

OHWOW – not your ordinary bookstore

OHWOWDownstairs in a historic brownstone house in West Village is the little odd bookstore OHWOW that sells art books, but also serves as a gallery.

For a while it looked gloomy on the bookstore front in New York. Many of the charming little bookstores have disappeared so it’s extra fun when there still are some left.
