    The downstairs boasts an amazing collection of rock records. Not to be missed, esp because of the sensible pricing.

    Staff is a little...not helpful. But there's a great selection here. Not much in the way of 45s though.

    Decent record shop. Its strength is in punk/metal, but carries most genres. Hosts shows occasionally (!!) and even sells shirts. Prices are pretty decent. Staff is low-key but knowledgable.

    Similar lineup as Bleecker Street Records, as in punk rock and metal. Can't find it one place, try the other.

    The best place to spend a rainy day in NYC if you are into record stores. What a selection of cd’s, vinyl, 7” and more! Check out their Record Store Day activities.

    It specializes in hardcore, garage, and punk CDs and vinyl. Don't expect to find anything rare, but there's a ton of stuff that's come out in the past few years and some older gems too. Read more
