Rizzoli bookstore in New York City announced that it will be closing its 57th Street store to the public on April 11.
Designed by architect Hugh Hardy, the space has been praised for its vaulted interior, but has been facing potential demolition, as Contract Editor in Chief John Czarnecki discussed in a blog post this week.
"We have truly appreciated the outpouring of support from so many of you as we enter the transition from the Rizzoli Bookstore's longtime home on W. 57th Street to our next chapter," the company posted on its Facebook page on Friday. "We have been scouting out new locations in Manhattan, and are delighted to report that we have seen several very promising spaces."
Rizzoli will be hosting a moving sale through April 11, with all books 40 percent off. For more information visit rizzolibookstore.com.
