Record stores in New York

Recommended Posts

I hope this is the right section of the forum. Here's what's up, I'll be in the US this September (mainly New York) and was wondering are there any stores you recommend visiting? Secondhand stores, pawn shops whateverr... would be greatly appreciated thanks

I can't help you with that one but I was just wondering: aren't they a dying concept?

The bigger chains probably, yeah. But sure there's gotta be a couple places with used CD bins or something, those are far more interesting anyway

I went to college in New York but that was twenty plus years ago. Back then I could've given you a whole laundry list of places but I have no idea how many, if any, are still in existence. (sigh)

Head West to Portland, Oregon. The hipsters out here are glomming onto vinyl like it is going out of style and there are many vinyl stores.

Too bad... I'll fly to Atlanta and rent a car there there

I live within 30 minutes of Albany and I don't know of hardly any used CD stores.I do hit FYE because they have used CD's.But I'm guessing you're going to NYC.

    • Excellent. I'm relieved as I thought some members here were all aboard the #metoo don't-dare-look-at-a-woman-because-that's-sexual-assault-you-misogynistic-creep bandwagon, and the acknowledging-that-a-lot-of-terrorists-are-muslim-is-so-fucking-racist bandwagon. But it's nice to hear you look beyond the basic "stats and lies" so hopefully we'll see no more politically correct "I love what the masses say; sign me up!" rubbish.

    • I'll give you one example. Tax cuts. Everyone loves tax cuts right?? and according to Trump every American got a tax cut in 2017.....but here are the facts - According to estimates from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, while most Americans will benefit at least somewhat, the top fifth of earners get 70 percent of the bill’s benefits, and the top 1 percent get 34 percent. The new tax treatment for “pass-through” entities — companies organized as sole proprietorships, partnerships, LLCs, or S corporations — will mean an estimated $17 billion in tax savings for millionaires in 2018   Sorry that's just wrong. And this will add over $1 trillion to national debt. Tax cuts for people expire in 2025/6 while corporation is permanent. Hello austerity measures. Trust me that ain't fun as the UK has found out for the last few years after Labour almost bankrupted our country. 
    • by intelligent he means looking into things beyond the basic stats and lies which are generally used to gloss / cover up what resides beneath And yes Nordic Union will receive no more spins from me. Besides being one paced and generally dull the songs aren't helped by Atkins straining throughout. 
    • I like the song, country vibe or whatever it is. Agree with comments that it wasn't what I expected when I saw the pic. It kinda looks like 3 band members, and they didn't like the look of the 3 of them together, so they asked a sound mixer to stand in the background lol
    • And by intelligent I'm assuming you mean people that follow what's trending in hip circles without looking into things for themselves?  I'm Australian and give very, very little shit about US politics. But I still listen to things and I don't think Russ is alone in his opinion that Obama was a very poor president and that, whether you agree with his politics or not, Trump actioned more stuff in one month than Obama did in years?  Nordic Union album still sucks balls. 
    • Very different to what their image suggests. Lose the country vibe and they're onto something. Not bad at all.
