    I get Your point, but this place is not big enough for a bank or CVS.

    At this point the entire corner of that block up to MacDougal seems vacant. I wouldn't be surprised if the entire side is razed for a new 4 storey (you know, offices on top, stores on the street level) building, up to where Electric Lady is.

    Not that I needed an excuse, but this is now an official excuse to hit this section of NYC when the weather warms up! Blind Tiger Ale House, Johns Brick Oven Pizza and then some Rekkid shopping = Primo Saturday afternoon!

    Maybe NYU can convert it to more dorm rooms.

    Yeah, that's been vacant for well more than a year now. I'm sure you're right, except I think it will be residential (astronomically priced of course). So close to the mews (MacDougal Alley), fortunately it's within the Greenwich Village Historic District (though the buildings on that corner are not distinctive or landmarked themselves), so presumably a monstrosity won't be built.

    So sorry to learn that Mainline is already gone! I went there in late November and found lots of good records at very fair prices, had a good chat with Don behind the counter too.

    Thankfully Brooklyn continues to be a great source for used records. I bought 14 albums today in Carroll Gardens, about 60% at Black Gold on Court Street and the rest at the newer shop, Almost Ready Records, a few blocks away on Huntington Street. The pricing on everything was fair, from $5 to one at $20, a mix of jazz and rock, pressings from the early 60’ to mid-80’s.
