Harry Brown

With the impending closure of Shakespeare & Co., we're saying goodbye to a friend of the NYU community. It is not the obligation of NYU to save the local bookstore. It's unlikely that even if Shakespeare & Co. reached a mutual agreement with the NYU Bookstore located just a few doors down that the additional revenue would offset the surge in rental prices.
