Being on Bleecker St. in the East Village , near Washington Square is one of my favorite places to be. And mostly because of the survival of some of the old standards like Bleecker St. Records 188 W. 4th St. I can get lost in here for hours and the staff is so knowledgeable.... will gladly chat with you regarding...

Loved this place. Very interesting with lots of stuff to look at. I always love spotting a new cool music store! If you're into music, it's definitely a gem to check out.

This store is undoubtedly a gem. We could have stayed in here for hours, digging through the crates and adding to our basket, with an expansive and varied selection of all things music related. However, our shop was marred by a very unprofessional argument between management and employee - which subsequently led to some very rude customer service from said... More

Have visited on previous trips to NYC, and did not realize they had moved. (Thank you, iPhone for finding the new address!) Good selection, cool vibe, and both young girls working were very friendly and helpful. Plenty of Bleecker St. Records merchandise available now to the previous reviewer who noted they didn't have any on his visit. Can't forget the... More

Here's the thing. Based on the name, the selection of vinyl and the presence of the resident cat I want to give an excellent to the this place. However, I just can't rate it that high. Firstly, the website. Its a joke! Maybe you have to live in the USA to access it but I doubt it. Instead its useless... More

I love this quaint record shop! I found so many rare Dylan records I didn't own already as well as unique Dylan posters. I love the vibe, energy and atmosphere and I am thankful this records store still exists! The staff members were friendly and helpful. You will find the musical gems downstairs. Have fun exploring!

I'm a collector of vinyl. This is vinyl heaven. Not to be mistaken for the overpriced place around the corner- if "Do they know it's Christmas" is worth 50 dollars my collection will make me a millionaire. Bleeker St records was recommended to me by the author of the NYC app I downloaded from iTunes, and he was entirely right.... More

Staying in West Village

Neighbourhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
