Alabaster Bookshop is the last of the secondhand bookstores that once lined Fourth Avenue. Just around the corner from the Strand, this bookshop is much smaller and more affordable, with trade paperbacks sold at half the cover price and two dollar hardcovers on the rolling carts outside. The selection is eclectic, ranging from post modern literature to Twilight, and also features some rare photography books and first edition paperbacks.
