About Market Block Books

Market Block Books opened in November of 2004. We are an offspring of The Book House of Stuyvesant Plaza (Albany, NY). We are on the ground floor of the Market Block building which was built in 1844. The store resembles a Victorian era book shop with oak floors, tin ceilings and mahogany bookcases. The store is flooded with light in the daytime and in the winter the swirling snow creates a cozy snow globe effect. It’s a charming space that is a joy to be in. We even have one or two resident ghosts to add just that special touch of style. Come and visit us.
