Wendy's Subway

Brooklyn, NY

Wendy’s Subway is a non-profit reading room, writing space, and independent publisher located in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Since 2013, Wendy’s Subway has provided an open and versatile platform for expanding modes of reading, writing, and publishing together. Our interdisciplinary public program presents readings, talks, performances and offers workshops regularly throughout the year. Our residency program highlights the work of independent library projects and publishers, by collaborating to gather special collections for display in the reading room, organize public events, and produce related publications. The non-circulating library holds a collection of over 3,000 titles, with a special focus on art, literature, and critical theory. We also carry the Laurin Raiken Archive, an extensive resource for the study of art history and criticism. The collection is catalogued on our website at and is available to readers during public library hours.
