Closed – 33 St. Marks Place, East Village New York City  10003

Ah back in the day.  You could spend the whole day on St. Marks Place looking at records.  Sounds, Venus, Rockit Scientist and round the corner Vinyl Finyl and See Hear.  I always had good luck in the outdoor bins here – the inside was not as large as the others, so he supplemented his space with outdoor bins.  Got all my Ramones records here and many more.
