Wallet Card at Scribners

Scribners bookstore was located in a Beaux-Arts building on Fifth Avenue across from Rockefeller Center, the only landmarked building designed to house a bookstore. The famous bookstore had numerous famous regular customers, including Joan Baez, Bob Dylan and Caroline Kennedy. Scribners closed in 1988 (the name still exists as a publishing company owned by CBS) and the location is now a Sephora. However the Charles Scribners' Sons sign can still be seen above the Sephora.
