Housing Works Bookstore Cafe has become a New York downtown institution and tourist destination for the past few years. It is a one-of-a-kind store selling books, movie and music selections, as well as a venue for special events. All of their merchandise is donated, and 100% of proceeds go to Housing Works, an advocacy organization for people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Almost all of the staff members are volunteers. It has a little cafe inside the store which is located at 126 Crosby Street in SoHO. For more information, click on their website.
