Best Record Stores in NYC

If you’ve read this newsletter at any point since forever, it should be pretty clear we’re huge fans of music. With the temps cooling off in New York and spending less time outdoors, we’re spending more time listening to our favorite albums on vinyl. This week we’ve rounded up our favorite shops in the city to dig through dusty crates of records.

Music Matters
Park Slope, Brooklyn

A very curated selection of new arrivals, mostly indie and classics.

A1 Records
East Village, Manhattan

Hard to find deep funk, soul, and hip hop deep cuts

Rough Trade Records 
Williamsburg, Brooklyn

The largest selection in the city — truly something for everyone. 

Head Sounds Records
Ft. Greene, Brooklyn

New Wave and jazz records in the back of a barber shop (it smells so good in here).

Academy Records
East Village, Manhattan & Greenpoint, Brooklyn

A HUGE collection of used rock records.

Public Records
Gowanus, Brooklyn

Very, very cool house records sold feet away from some of Brooklyn’s best coffee.

Superior Elevation Records
Bushwick, Brooklyn

Rare disco records in a space with beautiful light.
