Powerhouse Arena

    Powerhouse Books, a publishing company that specializes in art and culture, brings you Powerhouse Arena, a boutique book shop and exhibition space. Perched on the East River in Brooklyn’s Dumbo neighborhood, Arena holds myriad events and book signings, playing host to everyone from literary giant Salman Rushdie to filmmaker Spike Lee. The bookstore has an eclectic selection of art and photography books, consistent with Powerhouse’s commitment to largely publishing books on art, music, and pop culture. But the shop also carries an impressive array of non-fiction, including local history and lore and a surprising collection of beautiful children's books. Powerhouse Arena also happens to be the only store in New York that stocks the Japanese-made analog cameras by Power Shovel (which is, in addition to being a camera maker, also a publishing company). If the inventory itself doesn’t move you, the space – which has breathtaking views of Manhattan – certainly will. Show lessRead more
