    Hello there,

    This Christmas my family and I will be visiting New York. Really looking forward to this! Beside the tourist-must-go-spots, I would like to browse in some record stores. In the thread about the New York Meetup, there were soms shops mentioned, but also that some of them are already closed.
    My question; what stores are left in Manhattan? Which would be interesting for someone with a taste for progrock and Beatles? We stay in a hotel near Times Square, so in that neighbourhood would be great!

    Greetz,
    Cas

    Not all that many left. Some good new ones in Brooklyn so be familiar with the subway. In Manhattan, I did really like Downtown Music Gallery and also the store near NYU (can't remember the name just now).

    There are too many to list. My two cents is to search on Google maps and avoid stores with less than 4.5 rating.. Those tend to be overpriced..

    Lots of threads on this subject:

    I don't know how much you're going to find to your liking in that area. Most of the better stores (for rock) seem to be in the East Village or Brooklyn.

    There's a record store in the Times Square subway station, but I think they specialize in dance and Latin music. The Jazz Record Center on 26th Street is supposed to be awesome, but I've never been there.

    No prob. As with many websites, I often find it easier to go to Google and search rather than using the built-in search engine. If you add "site:stevehoffman.tv" to your google search, it will restrict results to this website only.
