Specialty Hungarian bookshop closes on East 12th Street

An EVG reader passed along word that workers were clearing out 10,000 Steps A Hungarian Bookstore at 545 E. 12th St. on Wednesday.

We stopped by here between Avenue A and Avenue B to find an empty shop yesterday … and there was a notice from the Marshal posted to the door…

The store opened in April 2008 "to serve the Hungarian community, those with Hungarian roots in North America and all others from our base in the New York Metropolitan area." The store sold an array of books, magazines, CDs and DVDs.

The store's website still appears to be active.

Sorry to see them go. It was a unique business.
