New York City children’s bookstore Books of Wonder on 18th Street will open a second location on West 84th Street this summer. The lease on the downtown store expires in 2019, and owner Peter Glassman explained, “Given the rise in retail rents along 18th Street, I am not optimistic about our ability to renew the lease.” (In 2012, the store turned to crowdfunding for support after a sub-tenant occupying 40 percent of their space went out of business.) Glassman said that the wants the new store to be “well established before the current store’s lease expires.” The store has relocated a few times since its founding in the West Village in 1980.
