2 More Bookstores

Here's a couple New York City bookstores that I found out about recently and have added to my list of NYC Bookstores. I haven't been to either but hope to soon to find out (and share) what they're like.
Airstream Books
A seasonal outdoor market on Metropolitan Avenue between Lorimar and Union Avenues in Williamsburg that also sells vintage modern furniture.

Potterton Books
A bookstore focused on "new and rare titles on interior design, architecture, garden, antiques, & the decorative arts," located in the Design & Decoration Building on Third Avenue, between 58th and 59th Streets.


  1. Hello, i stumbled upon your blog today, guess you know quite a lot about architecture, if so, can you help me find the e book of "The Time Savers Standards and Neuferts". If you can i would be highly grateful to you. Thank you.

  2. This is sooo great! I saw it in the blog of note when I was about to log off... But this is so great to miss so I am one of your followers. :) Hope you don't mind.

  3. Hello.

    I'm an architecture student from Scotland. I've had your blog set as my homepage for quite some time now. I love finding out about new architecture that is'nt in the usual architecture magazines that i would otherwise never see nor hear about.

    This blog has influenced me to start up my own. It's mainly a space for posting my own photographs of architecture that i've visited and experienced. I'm just getting started, but i'm looking to keep it going.

    The link for my blog is:

    Feel free to have a look and see what you think. I'll keep it regularly updated, in particular with some more photographs of contemporary Scottish architecture.

    Thanks again for this blog!

  4. Thanks for all the kind words, folks!

    Andy - I'm familiar with the Time Saver Standards series, but I don't know what you mean by Neuferts. If you can explain that I might be able to help.

  5. Hi I too 'stumbled upon' your blog. I love it! (it's more like a website should be!).

    I'm looking for new ways of advertising for sole traders and small businesses and have set up a 'thinking blog'!:


    Kind regards


  6. I've had a look at your fantastic, full list of bookshops !

    All the best from (Old) York in little England.

  7. Ah! i dont actually need Neuferts, i needed the Time Saver Standards series, it help in anthropometrics and stuff. Sorry for sounding this kiddish on your blog. I am just a first year student of architecture.
    Hope you understand. Andy.

  8. Very nice blog post! AS a skilled tradesman/ welder, carpenter, I can appreciate all the intensive work that you do, and my college print reading classes that broadened my mind!
    I write a blog too: Heli gunner Tom [NEW JOURNAL]

    A Journal that gives glory to the most high God of the Christian Bible, with a desire to help combat Veterans and others find the love,salvation and satisfaction of knowing the Lord's promises and prophesies that will soon become reality in heaven and on earth. Seek the Lord while He may yet be found. Time is very short, and "Life is a Vapor" ~James 4:14. My 2 emails:,,

  9. Andy - Those books retail for over 100 bucks. Try Abebooks and Alibris to get them for A LOT cheaper. A quick search yields a number of copies of the various books in the series (Architectural Design Data, Building Types, Landscape, Residential). Those would be worth checking out.
