Ten years after opening their first independent bookstore in Grand Central station, owners Gene and Maxene Posman decided to open a second Posman Books outpost in the Chelsea Market. The 2,000-square-foot shop includes ample room for browsing, with titles arranged by genres like self-help, literature, children’s, and graphic novels. Catering to the Market crowd, the culinary selection is particularly solid, featuring a variety of cookbooks and foodie memoirs. A few racks bear an array of greeting cards from companies like Positively Green and Setlzer—a thoughtful accompaniment for your Chelsea Market gift basket .
