Yes, one can see how they go out of business. Now that I see the photos, I was there once and walked 
out laughing at the ridicu-prices. They didn't even have any must-have-at-any-price items, at least 
not for me. There are still several excellent used vinyl stores in the Village, and why would anyone 
buy a new (or used) CD at any retail outlet when there is Amazon "new and used" and almost anything 
can be had for $5 or less, usually shrink-wrapped? As for used vinyl, I usually look but don't buy 
in Manhattan. In its favor, culturally, NYC is a place where people tend to love their music. So 
what ends up in these stores is mostly too-well-loved for me to crack open the wallet.  That said, 
what I have found in superb condition in NYC are more-obscure spoken-word records, and "status" 
stuff like the Reader's Digest/RCA/Decca sets and the Time-Life jazz sets. What also pops up from 
time to time are still-wrapped records from the 70's and early 80's that have tricked down from the 
bankruptcies of larger stores and chains. Usually these records are stamped with dollar price tags 
(which is NOT the current price) and have a hole punched or a corner cut off, literally cut-outs. 
The best score I ever had in that regard was a bunch of still-wrapped Mercury Golden Imports and 
Decca Jubilees for $1 each. The guy said he had them for several years, got them as part of a larger 
buy of bankruptcy detritis, and was happy to see the floor space cleared up. For a buck a sealed 
record, I'll buy anything that's within my taste parameters, that's as cheap as a single song 
download.
