Between cooling temperatures, earlier sunsets, and an unusually rainy September, "cozy season" is starting to descend on New York City. Such days would seem made for staying in and curling up with a good book. While physical books have a way of eating into an apartment's precious storage space, built-in bookshelves get around that easily. They were a popular prewar perk and remain a coveted feature in this age of e-books and minimalism - when fashion designer Philip Lim brought his eye for style to the renovation of his Soho apartment around a decade ago, enhancements included custom bookshelves in the library. It is among the listings with built-in shelving featured below.
