Record stores in NYC: A guide to vinyl, collectibles and more

For true vinyl collectors, this minimal, vibey record store is the perfect place to grab an espresso and a croissant, and get lost in funk, house, electronic and world offerings you'd be hard-pressed to find elsewhere in the city (listening stations are also available). For those just dipping their toes into the world of records, prepare for the best. (1129 Bedford Ave., Bed-Stuy, themixtapeshop.com) Photo Credit: Jeff Bachner

Anyone who collects vinyl records enjoys the thrill of the hunt, as they search through racks and crates for their ultimate musical “find.”

And sure, we know many prefer to shop on Amazon or listen to their music on Spotify, iTunes, YouTube and SoundCloud. They don’t know what they’re missing.

So, if you plan to make a day of record-store hopping, we have some recommendations. You’ll find a handful of shops in the East Village and Williamsburg, but there are more spots to celebrate – and dig into – throughout the city.
