Happened upon this store and picked up some promo CDs for .50 cents that are worth $20! It needs a bit more organization but overall a good place to scour for collectibles.

It definitely has a target audience in mind but also has other genre's covered. I appreciated it's rare poster selection. I was surprised at the selection of t-shirts. If you are in the market for a black punk or metal t-shirt, this is your stop.

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
