Marc, your best bet is with Temdee.com, they have a catalogue of over 15,000 titles, some of which are a great bargain, others of which are ridiculously overpriced, but check it out....As far as stores go, Music Factory in the Bronx has a decent selection of still un-opened old school stuff from Micmac (only the later stuff), Metropolitan and Cutting, and some others, and the best thing is that everything is 4.99$ I got brand new 12" of "Another Night" by Reinaldo and "The Way She Looks At Me"/"Just Like The Wind" by Peter Fontaine just about a month ago

I don't think they have their website up yet. Call them up. The automated phone system comes on and you can get directions that way.

The best record shop for freestyle use to be Crazy records in Manhattan, way back in time, then Vinylmania, Music factory, Rock'N'Soul, the promo pools. In the UK and Europe, blue Bird Records, Black market Records, Record and Disco center in Ratyners Lane. Some are still there in the UK. you can get almost any record in the Uk if you try from any part of the world. God save the qUeen..........She represents the world. IN manhattan Rock'N' Soul, Flea markets, HMV? VIRGIN?
We need records not anything else. from a compulsive oldtime vinyl junkie. I could fly to Italy to eat pasta, can you imagine what I would do for a record.... I just flew 14hours over 2 days over the weekend just to DJ in Europe and get back to work in Manhattan on Monday; A Network engineer.
I cannot afford Concord otherwise I woul be everywhere.
This is what music does to people...........

Hey Marc, I agreed w/Johnny Budz, I was there in MONDO couple of records that I was looking for and its true, its a small section.
They even allow you to listen to the records, just have to show a valid drivers lic to use the turntable. Take a time and have a look.

See ya! :)
