Another one has not bitten the dust: Good Records moved

I was kind of alarmed the other night to walk past the Good Records storefront on East Third Street and see it all papered up, with a “for rent” sign in the window. Hadn’t been there in a while, but it is always a tragedy when yet another New York record store shuts down.




BUT. Turns out Good Records has only moved, to 218 East Fifth Street. Which means I am now even more overdue to update my old Manhattan record store map. Anybody been the new location?

Thanks for this post - many folks find the new location only by accident, having thought the same thing you did. The old landlord has long since removed my signs directing people here so there's little we can do at this point.

They begged that I leave the old awning intact so that, as he said, "the place won't look too desolate." We exhausted all reasonable attempts to renew our lease there, but the new space is much nicer and bigger... and as you can see, the old place is still vacant. Little guys FTW.
