Huge selection of used books, DVDs, and other media. It has a lot of items in the store, but it does not seem crowded. The store is well light, categories are well laid out, and there is freedom to roam the store to find the...More

Not your usual dimly lit junk shop, Bookoff is bright, modern, efficiently run, and sells only quality stuff. We've been coming for almost two decades and used to visit their prior location.

My friend discovered this store when looking at NYC bookstores online, and as a huge manga fan and Japanese learner, she desperately wanted to go so I agreed. I am a Young Adult reader and found their selection to be good, but a little small,...More

I wasn't interested in the CD/DVDs or the graphic novels but the wall of $1 books got me. I stopped at 3 but if I lived here I'd have been in big trouble! This is a big clean well-organized store with helpful staff and a...More

This seems to be a combination of a specialty shop for Japanese books and a used-book/media/tech store. There are two or three floors full of merchandise ranging from used monitors to used games and a heavy, heavy portion of the store is devoted to Japanese...More

This is a fantastic place! Great prices and a huge selection of dvds, cds, and books made this a great place to cool off as we were walking around the city. Manga fans will especially love it.
