For many years Maya had a Cheese & Antiques shop on W. 69th. Not only did locals and tourists love its pairing of beautiful treasures and stinky delicious cheese, but it went down in NYC-centric movie history as the scene-stealing Around the Corner book shop in the 90s rom-com, You’ve Got Mail. Though soaring rents forced the shop’s closure, the Grand Bazaar is proud to keep Maya’s wares available for discerning customers.
The antiques here are primarily English and uncommon, so you’ll be sure to find something really special.
