Excuse me, but the "glory days" of New York record stores was not Tower Records.  It was: Sam Goody, King Karol, Record Hunter, the fab record buyer at the Doubleday's bookstore on 5th Ave. and 57th Street - and, of course, Colony.  Period.

If I could open my own record store, it would be exactly like Rough Trade. Great selection of records, friendly/funny staff, they have art and music books on the second floor along with a ping pong table and area to hang out. There's also a little coffee shop inside and a music venue in the back. They have great shows here, artist signings and special events. Sometimes I stop by just to hang out. if you are into record collecting or music at all, you need to stop by!

The venue at this shop is fantastic. Great sound, easy to nab a good spot and solid booking.
