Here’s something to brighten your Friday. A new bookstore! On the Lower East Side! In 2018!

Yesterday, Laurie Gwen Shapiro noticed the arrival of Aeon Bookstore at 151 East Broadway (between Essex Street and Pike Street Street).

The store features both new and used books. There’s also going to be a space in back for events (it’s not quite ready yet). Laurie met co-owner Karl Bauer, who’s partnered with Josiah Wolfson and Benjamin George Friedman. There’s going to be a grand opening celebration tonight from 6 to 8 p.m. Here’s the Facebook invite.

While you’re at it you might as well stop by the great Malaysian cafe, Kopitiam, which is located in the same building.
