BOOKSTORE

Three Lives is our living room, and a living place. It is a work in progress. We (the store and our customers) have grown up and evolved together. People come here to see and buy what we consider to be some of the best books available today. They also come to discuss books, culture, and events of the moment. They meet for a sense of community in times of national tragedy and personal celebration. Intrinsically, books extend a graciousness that provokes discourse.

Three Lives & Company is located in the heart of New York's Greenwich Village on the corner of West 10th Street and Waverly Place. We are within walking distance of the A,C,E,B,D,F,Q,1 and 9 subway trains.
