Record stores in New York and beyond. All places have used vinyl and all the descriptions include their timetable or phone number.
Gimme gimme records
One of those places where genres be damned, they’ve got a little bit of everything, or maybe I should say you never know what you’ll find.
Hospital productions record store
If you like your metal with corpse paint this shop is the place to go. Hospital specializes in black metal and extreme noise records, but they’ve also got anything that tends towards the rough and tumble excesses of punk, hardcore, and rock. You can check out their website to get an idea of what they carry.
Academy records annex
Academy Records owns three different record shops in New York, this one, in Williamsburgh, is the best bet for vinyl of absolutely any genre.
The friendly folks there challenge both the record store employee and new yorker stereotypes by being pretty damn helpful.
Mercer st books & records
Used book shop with a large selection of out of print and hard to find books that also has some vinyl records. They also have new books.
