Yu and Me Books

Indie Bookstore
(646) 559-1165

Located in Chinatown, Manhattan, Yu and Me Books is a bookstore that showcases immigrant stories and creates a home for the community. It is the first female, Asian-American owned bookstore in New York City. The initials of the bookstore, YM, are the owner’s mother’s initials and represent the stories that have been passed down to them for generations.

Their carefully curated books and offerings of beer, wine, and coffee cultivate a safe community space to sip, read, and foster conversations. The store also hosts events throughout the year, including pop-ups, book launches, readings, and more.
