    Helpful staff and surprisingly well-organized considering the amount of inventory. Was able to find the obscure classical CD I wanted quickly, with a bit of help. And at a good price.

    One of the rare remaining true used record stores in NYC. It's pretty much impossible to walk out of there having not bought something. Great selection, amazing prices and always in good condition.

    A well curated selection of used CD's. The stock turnover is high, and the customers tend to be serious music buffs, so if you see something you like - snap it up. Read more

    I sold my old records here. It was like giving away pieces of my childhood, but Eric took the time to chat with me about my collection, and point out some cool, rare items. My LPs went to a good home!

    Winner of Best Place to Buy CDs in the Village Voice 2011 Best Of issue! Try to stump the staff on pop culture and music knowledge - it's impossible.

    Bulging shelves hold CDs, LPs, and an extensive collection of film noir, silent, and foreign movies.

    I like Academy’s selection of dance records, which are priced nicely. They’re open with the synth genre and interested in local label releases. -Veronica Vasicka, Founder, Minimal Wave Read more

    Great service. Smaller rock selection, but incomparable classical.

    Good place for classical music. The staff is less than helpful.

    Always some place to be checked. Damn, but didn't I find a CD set of the complete solo piano works by Ferrucio Busoni there.
