Scribble Press Coming to the Upper West Side!

September 16, 2010 at 11:29 pm Leave a comment

It’s official! In November, we’re opening our third Scribble Press at 84th St. and Broadway. Zabars, H&H, The Museum of Natural History, Lincoln Center….We can’t wait to be part of the neighborhood.

So why the Upper West Side? We already have a studio in Manhattan – First Avenue and 84th Street. A few reasons: First, the thought of going to a totally different city for our third store seemed really challenging, and there are so many great locations in New York City and Los Angeles that would welcome another Scribble Press. We wanted to stick with a market we already knew and loved.

The Upper West Side is such a busy, vibrant community filled with families that it seemed like the natural next place for us. Also, we can travel from one store to the other by just hopping on the 86th Street Crosstown bus – kind of like I used to do when I was a seventh grader on my way to Brearley.

We found a terrific space at 84th and Broadway. It’s catty corner from Five Napkin Burger (YUM) and right across from a Loews Multiplex Cinema and a Victoria’s Secret. (Although, I am not sure what our connection there might be – moms can buy thong underwear while their kids write a first novel?)

We’re going to a be busy for about eight weeks building marker caddies and painting the bathroom pink. Not to mention, setting up all the magical bookbinding equipment, creating an amazing party space and decorating a cool lounge area. This UWS location is going to be a fantastic destination for fun and creativity. Stay tuned for news on our November opening!

Do you have any suggestions for what you’d like to see at the new store? What things do you like about the Upper East Side location that you want us to carry over to the Upper West Side studio? What would you suggest we change or add? We’d love to hear from you!
