Terrible service. Maybe the guy at the front desk thought I was a tourist or just didn't like my look, but when I asked if they carried postcards he simply (and rudely) replied "No." My girlfriend then found a handful of vintage postcards, exactly what we were looking for, on the table next to the desk. I asked if they were for sale and he simply replied "No." He offered no explanation. I can't say they didn't have what I wanted, but they don't seem to care about selling any of it.

It's a used book store that is small but carries some very interesting books in stock. Good luck finding any new releases but they do have an abundance of rare editions and hard to find books. The store is somewhat organized and you have to be careful walking around without bumping into shelves but you can find some good books in there.

I mainly dodged into this bookstore because the title reminded me of the white pimp character from King of the Hill. "Alabaster!" The bookstore itself is not much to speak of besides the title. They seem to specialize in old photography books , geography tomes and New York centric books, and my coffee table is already full. Plus, it's really close to the Strand, rendering it unnecessary.
