i think they are all worth looking in.
i avoided many of them for too long because i knew the prices were to high, or the selection was crappy. it turned out i just didn't know what i was looking at.
subterranean is out of business. closed last week.
bleeker bobs is worth a visit. i found a ken lauber for way below the going rate recently, and some other stuff that had been sitting for years.
bleeker street and generation have a slow turnover, but still worth visiting. it only takes a minute.
other music is fantastic. i actually go there about once a week lately.
gimmie gimmie is one of the best. nice guy in there too. weekly visits from me.
crypt is a singular vision. worth it everytime.
eat records has great records, sandwiches and cookies. i want a cookie.
academy on 12th street (formally 10th) and in williamsburg are the best places to shop bar none. do some digging and you'll find something good at a great price. the annex will have all the latest psych reissues and new releases, if thats your bag. limited pressings all up in there.
the idea of brooklyn being too far to visit from manhattan is the funniest thing i've heard. there are too many people on the upper east side that think that already. honestly, take a stroll through the different sections of brooklyn and realize that it is one of the best things NYC has to offer, for now. soon it'll probably be entirely bullshit winebars, and factory outlet malls.
washington square is totally ruined for the time being too.
