92 Horatio Street via The Corcoran Group 92 Horatio Street via The Corcoran Group
More than six months after New York City shut down to contain the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, life is still not back to normal following a carefully phased reopening. The Columbus Day parade has been cancelled in lieu of a virtual celebration. The Village Halloween Parade has also been cancelled, and Broadway is expected to stay dark until May 2021.

If ever there was a time to stay home with a good book, this was it. The New York Public Library is offering grab-and-go service from select locations, and New Yorkers can enjoy the library's digital collection and programming from home. As we take a look at New York apartments with built-in shelving to please even the biggest bookworms, we'll be recommending city-set books as well. From downtown conversions to Upper East Side classics, from literary classics to thrillers to romances, there is something for everyone to be found.
