About Us

Arcade Booksellers is Rye’s only independent bookstore. For over 30 years, Patrick Corcoran has owned and managed this unique bookstore in the heart of Rye, and his enthusiasm for the business has made his store one of the oldest in Rye. Located at 9 Theodore Fremd Avenue, Arcade Booksellers is a favorite local shop and has been touted as “Many book groups’ store of choice” by Westchester Magazine.

Arcade carries a range of books – from children’s pop-up books to the most current fiction and nonfiction titles – but its real draw is its knowledgeable owner. Not sure what to get for a six-year-old this Christmas? Arcade owner Patrick Corcoran is always eager to help with spot-on recommendations, and he gift wraps for free. What about that obscure book you can’t find anywhere? Patrick will search out whatever you need, and if you don’t live in the area he’ll ship it to you.

For all your book needs, head to Arcade to find out what makes this small bookstore a mainstay in the town of Rye.
