All Eyes on Egypt Bookstore – Outdoor art/culture

This beautiful building is such an eye catcher. It brings such vibrant colors and life to the residential block. It’s always been a cultural building. However, it has changed over the years. There was originally just Egyptian paintings on the side of it. Over the years, however, things have been added and subtracted to the outside which gives it the look it has now. 

I love seeing this building at night because it is truly breathtaking. I also like it because it is unique. There really is no other place in New York that looks like this one. The inside of the building definitely complements the outside. It contains statues, painting on the walls, tables and chairs. 

This building is also connected to the bookstore that is next door, which has a range of books that talk about health, wellness, fundamentals of math, and Nubia. Sometimes they hold events and flea markets on the inside. 

As of right now, the building is closed so no one is allowed inside. However, the outside is available for viewing and taking pictures at anytime of day or night. It looks great during the day but even better at night, when the building is lit up.
