Rizzoli to reopen Monday with newly designed Broadway location

Rizzoli Bookstore is opening their new flagship store

Rizzoli Bookstore is opening their new flagship store on Monday, July 27 at 1133 Broadway in the historic St. James Building.

The next chapter for Rizzoli Bookstore is about to begin.

The nearly half-century old establishment will open its new store at 1133 Broadway on Monday, more than a year after it shut its doors at 31 W. 57th Street. The 5,000-square foot store, which will be open seven days a week, will showcase a one of a kind design that celebrates Rizzoli's history.

It includes an 18-foot tall by 34-foot wide glass facade, 18-feet ceilings and a peaked skylight. The cherry wood bookcases and grand brass and iron chandeliers from the 57th Street location, which closed in April 2014 because of a high rise development, will be moving to the new spot.

Fornasetti Milano designed a wallpaper for the new store that has images of Italian cities, Zodiac figures and hot air balloons.
