The long-running New York institution’s flagship store, Academy Records and CDs—next door to the tiny niche where it originated back in ’77—boasts the city’s best selection of used classical CDs and LPs, plus an impressive array of rock and jazz discs. The store also has a branch across the East River (Academy Record Annex), which specializes in vinyl, with both new albums and sharply picked old ones available at reasonable prices. Approachable help and knowledgeable buyers add to the overall experience. Plan to spend time—and money—at both locations.
