Here's more about the situation via the Bluestockings Instagram account:
Due to gross negligence by the owner of the building we are based out of, we have had to close our doors temporarily in order for emergency construction to take place. We were told this would be a two-day job, but mismanagement, weather, and a lack of the correct permits have prolonged the process to at least a five-day job.We are a small, anti-capitalist bookstore with razor-thin profit margins, and having to close for this length of time will have a huge financial impact on us as worker-owners and our business. If you would like to support us during this time, please consider making a purchase online or becoming a member ...
Bluestockings opened at 172 Allen St. between Stanton and Rivington in 1999... before relocating in 2021 to this space between Rivington and Delancey.

I hope this is resolved very soon. Bluestockings is needed to the neighborhood and the city.
A bookstore truly for the people and by the people .. a great service to the community
Thank you so much for the support!
Thankfully we will be fairly credited on rent for all the days we were closed and orders + donations from the community gave us enough to pay ourselves wages and other miscellaneous monthly overhead costs.
We try! 💙💙
