Record Grouch, Brooklyn

by Michael Kucyk

This store used to be a lesser known spot lurking below a vintage store in Williamsburg. Their new Greenpoint site is less dingy basement and more welcoming open plan. I went the opening day and it was too packed to photograph, but customers were walking out with big grins and 30 record piles in tow.

Loaded with cheap staples, Record Grouch is the ideal place to affordably start a collection from scratch. Close to the infamous Thing (1001 Manhattan Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11222) and also Permanent Records (181 Franklin Street  Brooklyn, NY 11222).
