Crawford Doyle Booksellers has been a favorite bookshop and a neighborhood institution in one of the world’s most literary cities for over 18 years. Celebrities, prominent authors, and devoted readers of all kinds visit us regularly, and we are grateful to say that, contrary to popular belief, the era of the independent bookshop is nowhere near its end.

We carefully select our titles to ensure that our small space offers only the most exciting and thought-provoking books. Our staff is well-versed in the world of words, and we are always delighted to help customers make a selection based on interests, preferred writing style, and favorite books.

Whether you have a specific title in mind, just want to browse our carefully curated shelves to see what catches your eye, or have only a vague notion of what you would like to read next and are seeking an expert recommendation, we look forward to welcoming you to our store!

"A wonderful establishment, with a splendid staff. This place helps redeem the Upper East Side of New York. Every reader in the area should make it a home away from home."

–Stephen Koch, Author and Former Chairman of the MFA Graduate Writing Program at Columbia

"A veritable book lover’s paradise"

– New York Social Diary

“Crawford Doyle is that rarity: a gorgeous store with the nuanced selection and incredible staff to back it up. They set a new benchmark for what a bookstore can be and do.”

– Dustin Kurtz, Marketing Manager at Melville House
