Fifth Avenue Records & Tapes

Venue Info

Over four decades old, this tiny South Slope shop sells albums at ridiculously affordable prices (from 50-cent bargains to a $15 near-mint five-LP Springsteen live box set). The overall lack of organization means it's not for the shopper looking for a specific record, but if you're in the mood to spend time shuffling through stacks and bins, it's perfect. The space is tiny and the inventory is massive, so any more than 4 shoppers makes the space feel cramped.
