McNally Jackson Opens in Brooklyn

Shelf Awareness

New York City's McNally Jackson, which has several stores in Manhattan, has opened its first store in Brooklyn. The store, at 76 North 4th Street in Williamsburg, is in the Lewis Steel Building, a former factory that has been under renovation for years, causing delays in the store's opening.

In an announcement, McNally Jackson wrote, in part: "Are there still little piles of sawdust here and there? Yes. Rogue pieces of blue tape? Probably, but we're working on it. Do we have every book on the shelves? Not yet, but we're getting there. We do have James Baldwin, we have Proust, we have Richard Feynman and Mary Beard. The new n+1 is here, and so are those weird little art books you love. We have Fire and Fury, kids books galore, stationery for days, and, yes, Moby-Dick.

"We've been working hard, and we can't wait to sell you some books. Come and see."
