Berl’s Poetry Shop

Berl’s Brooklyn Poetry Shop is New York's only all poetry bookstore. It is a bookstore that sells poetry books and chapbooks; a space that celebrates art, creativity, performance, and the handmade; a partner to many small presses local to Brooklyn, around the country, and worldwide; a place for readers of all ages; a passion project; an experiment; a gallery for books; a home for words;a place to read, to hear poets read, to meet poets and readers, and to join a community.

With the Manhattan Bridge rumbling overhead, they make their home amid a vibrant Brooklyn literary culture in DUMBO, near the former stomping grounds of Walt Whitman. The shop is named after co-founder Jared White's late grandfather, Harmon "Berl" White, an inspiring entrepreneur and book lover.
