Academy Music and about 100 other places in practically every neighborhood in the city & surrounding burbs. I take it you're not from NYC????

In addition, there are these "Disco Rama" shops scattered about town where new CD's of popular labels cost $10. There is one located at W 4th St. between Grove & Jones streets. There are several more used CD/Record shops in this area of west village. I don't recall any names but they're scattered between 6th & 7th Avenues between Bedford and West 4th Streets. Try walking on these streets -- Bleecker (bet Hudson and 6th Ave), Jones, Cornelia, Carmine. There is a Kim's Video at Bleecker/W-10th.
Thanks for the leads. I scored a couple of out-of-print CDs I'd been looking for at Academy Records & CDs (W. 18th), and found some cheap vinyl at Downtown Music Gallery (E. 5th). Other good, but pricier, stops for vinyl were Finyl Vinyl and A-1, both on E. 6th. For the best deals, though, you can't beat the guy on the sidewalk on E. 8th, opposite Cooper Union.He's there "three times a week, when I feel like it."
