Village rare bookstore, Skyline Books, closes doors after 20 years

Say goodbye to yet another dusty, musty piece of vanishing Manhattan.

All that's now left of Skyline Books is a sign in the window reading "End of an Era. Thanks for 20 Great Years."

That's how long Robert Warren's used book store at 13 W. 18th St. lasted - a kind of hole-in- the-wall home to a universe of rare books, from first editions of Beat Generation classics like "The Dharma Bums," to pornographic Italian comics to an autographed copy of Charles Bukowski's "Post Office."
