Not an April Fools

In January it was revealed that Rizzoli Bookstore "may have to flee the wrecking ball, again" (NYTimes) to make way for what will most likely be yet another supertall building on 57th Street. Walking past the store today I saw a sign that makes their eviction official:



If you haven't been to Rizzoli's beautiful three-story space in the 109-year-old building at 31 West 57th Street, you have 10 days to do so. Oh, and per their Facebook page, all books and CDs are 40% off!
