Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

We’re the first to admit that the prices at Dover Street Market aren’t exactly wallet-friendly, but since the high-end fashion mecca recently obtained an Idea Books section, we think these unique volumes (sourced from around the world) are a worthier splurge. This is the company’s first permanent store in the U.S., including a thoughtful selection of 100 rare titles (only available in single copies). Collectors can snatch up coffee-table books like You Can Take the Boy Out of Vietnam but You Can’t Take Vietnam Out of the Boy by Bruce Weber ($175), River Phoenix Roadshow Special Issue from Japanese publisher Shueisha ($95) and Tracht by Juergen Teller featuring photographs by Lehmann Maupin ($750).
