Photo by myself on Carmine and Bleecker Streets, in the Village.
The House of Oldies is a record store in the Village. As you can see, not every storefront in Manhattan is brand-shiny new. It was shuttered closed on Sunday but it is open during the week.
Founded in 1968, the storefront must not have changed a bit. There are supposedly over a million vinyl (yes, vinyl) records inside.
As with any store or restaurant, please do a little research beforehand. For the store's website, click here.
In late May, the magazine published 'The Ultimate Apartment', a story about a gorgeous apartment on 20th Street in Chelsea. A successful fashion photographer lived there and advertised the apartment as a sublet on Craigslist.
It just goes to show, however, that if anything is too good to be true, it is. People were lining up outside the door to live there. And the story only gets more interesting.
The article is available online, but only for subscribers. Click here for the synopsis on the New Yorker website.
