The Garden District Book Shop resides inside the historic property called the Rink at the corner of Washington Avenue and Prytania Street in New Orleans' beautiful Garden District. We carry a large collection of regional titles - new and used; design, art and gardening books; fiction and non-fiction; children's; and signed first editions and limited editions by many regionally and nationally acclaimed authors. The Rink was originally built in 1884 as the Crescent City Skating Rink (roller skating) to lure passing tourists during the World's Cotton Centennial Exposition. Since then the building has housed a livery stable, mortuary, grocery store, and gas station.
