Colony Music – 1619 Broadway, Times Square NYC 10019
Long a fixture in Times Square, the Colony has closed. Here is a report of its eminent demise in the Times published on August 23, 2012 – Music Shop Recognizes Somber Tune: Its Final Coda . Here’s another from the Village Voice Closing the Colony: A Visit to Times Squares Shuttering Sheet Music Outpost with the history of the Colony. Unlike other record stores, this one also heavily featured sheet music and memorabilia. And the jumping for joy record store girl. Came here during the odd lunch hour, when there were many more records, scads of shelves lined with them.
Below you will find a photo of Colony from back in the day.
