Rizzoli Bookstore Staff Picks

A destination for books and culture, Rizzoli Bookstore opened its doors in Flatiron in 2015. Curling up with a good book can be a worthwhile, and engaging way to spend time as you stay indoors to help flatten the curve. Glance some staff picks from the Rizzoli team as you waver which book to take on next. Happy reading! 

Although Rizzoli temporarily closed their doors due to the outbreak, their online store conveniently brings their book selections to you. Rizzoli also recently launched a Bookstore Subscription that delivers the best books of the year to your door suited to your taste - you select a category, and Rizzoli's booksellers will hand-pick a book for you. 

Book Recommendations 

"Cleanness" by Garth Greenwell
In the highly anticipated follow-up to his beloved debut, Greenwell deepens his exploration of foreignness, obligation, and desire. In exacting, elegant prose, he transcribes the strange dialects of desire, cementing his stature as one of our most vital living writers.

"Drive Your Plow Over The Bones of The Dead" by Olga Tokarczuk 
A deeply satisfying thriller and fairytale, this book is a provocative exploration of the murky borderland between sanity and madness, justice and tradition, autonomy and fate. 

"How to Do Nothing" by Jenny Odell 
Far from simple anti-technology screed, this book is an action plan for thinking outside of the capitalist narrative of efficiency and techno-determinism.

"New York: Club Kids" by Walt Cassidy 
Cassidy's book offers a flashback into 90's New York through to eyes of a club kid. Days of never-ending nightlife and explosions of costumes, makeup, and color are depicted by the multi-media artist and designer through outrageous photographs. 

"Pasta Grannies" by Vicky Bennison 
Featuring the secrets of Italy's best home cooks, Tim from the Rizzoli team says "This amazing cookbook features pasta recipes from Bennison's popular YouTube channel. You'll not only discover how to make different pastas from scratch, but also learn about the grandmothers behind the recipes and the regions from which they come."

"Remodelista: The Organized Home" by Julie Carlson & Margot Guralnick
Staying at home is a perfect time to reorganize and this book offers over 100 tricks for living like a minimalist. Readers will learn strategies for conquering their homes' problem zones (from the medicine cabinet to the bedroom closet) and stylish tips for every room. 

"Salt Fat Acid Heat" by Samin Nosrat 
With charming narrative, illustrated walkthroughs, and a lighthearted approach to kitchen science, Samin demystifies the four elements of good cooking for everyone. 

"Voices from Chernobyl" by Svetlana Alexienvich 
Comprised of interviews in monologue form, Davor from the Rizzoli team describes this work as, "A book that will stay with you for the rest of your life. To read the incredible and heart-wrenching oral accounts of the participants, perpetrators, and survivors of the Chernobyl disaster is not only to experience their imaginable horror and perseverance first hand but also, more importantly, to feel the true scope of the human spirit.  

"Where Cooking Begins: Uncomplicated Recipes to Make You a Great Cook" by Carla Lalli Music 
Laidback and built to share, these simple but sophisticated recipes are the kind you accidentally memorize and learn to live by.

"Weather" by Jenny Offill 
Offil’s book is a somewhat stream of conscious narrative that examines the small precise details of everyday life, as well as the big questions of our time. Provocative, engaging and an ode to the power of connection. “This is so good, we are not ready nor worthy”- Ocean Vuong, Vietnamese-American poet, essayist, and novelist. 

"Writers & Lovers" by Lily King 
Written with King's trademark humor, heart, and intelligence, this book is a transfixing novel that explores the terrifying and exhilarating leap between the end of one phase of life and the beginning of another.

COVID-19 - Financial Resources for Businesses & Nonprofits

Updated Saturday, April 4, 9:45am

The Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership is closely following the response from the City, State, and Federal governments and has compiled financial resources for small businesses, nonprofits, and employees below.

If you have questions or needs, please email the team directly: 


For more information, please visit the NYC Department of Small Business Services (SBS) Assistance & Guidance for Businesses​ webpage.

The NYC Department of Finance (DOF) recognizes that taxpayers, including small businesses, may be unable to meet certain NYC filing and payment deadlines due to COVID-19. The City of New York will allow for a waiver of penalties for DOF-administered business and excise taxes due between March 16, 2020 and April 25, 2020. Additional information can be found here.

DOF also offers several programs to assist property owners who face hardships making their property tax payments including the Property Tax and Interest Deferral Program, Exemption Programs, and Standard Payment Plans.

  • SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loan: As a small business or nonprofit affected by COVID-19, you may be eligible to borrow up to $2 million in working capital from the U.S. Small Business Administration's Economic Injury Disaster (EID) Loan program. The interest rate is 3.75% for small businesses, 2.75% for nonprofits. The SBA recommends that all EID Loan applications be submitted online and envisions a processing time of two to three weeks.

Other SBA programs include SBA Debt Relief and SBA Express Bridge Loans (for small businesses who already have a relationship with an SBA lender). Applicants may apply online, receive additional disaster assistance information, and download applications here, and can call (800) 659-2955 or email for further information. 

  • Bloomberg Philanthropies & NY Community Trust: The NYC COVID-19 Response & Impact Fund was created to aid nonprofit service providers struggling with the health and economic effects of the coronavirus. Priority will be given to nonprofits addressing essential healthcare and food insecurity as well as arts and culture. The new $75 million fund will provide grants and loans to small and medium-sized nonprofits.


  • Facebook Small Business Grants Program: Facebook is offering $100 million in cash grants and ad credits for up to 30,000 businesses in over 30 countries affected by COVID-19. Applications will open in the coming weeks.
  • Manhattan Chamber of Commerce Help Desk: For expert advice on a variety of small business topics (funding, legal issues, government regulations, staffing, marketing, real estate, health care, technology, etc.), businesses can utilize the Manhattan Chamber of Commere Help Desk. No need to be a Chamber member, the Help Desk is currently open to all who need it. 


  • NY Unemployment Insurance: New York State is waiving the 7-day waiting period for unemployment insurance for those who are out of work due to COVID-19, quarantine, and any associated policies. The Federal CARES Act will add $600 weekly to unemployed workers for a period of up to four months through July 31.
  • USBG National Charity Foundation: If you are a bartender or hospitality worker, you may be eligible for a grant through the Bartender Emergency Assistance Program.

Support Local Businesses

Updated 3/16/2020

Businesses are being affected by the new Coronavirus (Covid-19) in tangible ways across New York City. There are ways that community members can still help support the local economy and our beloved small businesses in the midst of the related economic slowdown. This is a rapidly changing situation and we urge everyone to follow the guidelines and protocols, including social distancing, put forth by public health officials.

Effective 8PM Monday, March 16, crowd capacity is to be reduced to 50 total people, and 50% occupancy rates. Restaurants and bars that serve food will be shifting to takeout/delivery ONLY. It is being reported that alcholic beverages will now also be available for delivery.

All gyms and fitness centers and movie theatres must also close at 8pm tonight. 

    1. Order Delivery:  When ordering delivery from your favorite spot consider ordering from a business's website directly, instead of thrid-party outlets that collect commission fees, which ensures more of your dollars go directly to the business

    2. Shop Locally Online:  Support local retailers by purchasing items for delivery. 

    3. Buy gIft cards: Retailers, restaurants, fitness studios, cultural amenities and services may be offering online gift cards for purchase. Buying one now for future use gives businesses some much needed shirt-term income.

    4. Essential staff lodging: If your essential personel are needed close to work, many area hotels have reduced rates. 

    5. Give good reviews: Use your time to give businsses you love great reviews on various platforms and like and share their social media posts.
    6. If possible, don't ask for refunds. If a changing situation means you're no longer in need of their service, consider not asking for a refund. 

Our interactive, digital Flatiron Guide that maps out the district is a helpful resource to become aware of local businesses. You can filter by business type for easy searching.  Note that many businesses may have closed completely so double check their website for delivery or gift card availability, or give them a call. 

Again, stay up to date on current conditions in New York City and please stay home, even if you don't feel sick.

For more infomation on local updates, you can visit our resource page. You can also visit the New York City Department of Health General Info Page.
