This is a bookstore and publishing company that I visited a couple of times back in 2009, when it was located at 57th Street and Broadway. At the time of this writing, Dahesh was in transit to a new location, so check back here later or contact the store directly for information on its new home.

The company does a lot of wholesale business, and they sell to clients such as Columbia and New York University. However, my experience suggested that intrepid language-learning individuals were also welcome.

I got the best possible service there. The guy who helped me, Mike, was extremely nice and patient. He taught me a few Arabic words, answered a couple of questions I had about written Arabic, showed me around the place, and gave me recommendations for study materials.

Obviously I wasn’t a high-volume kind of customer, but he didn’t rush me in the slightest. He is currently still at Dahesh and still helpful!
