Bleeker Bob’s, NYC.

by Tim Soter

Bleeker Bob’s is a classic NYC record shop which is sadly set to close down for good in two months.  What will be lost is a retail environment offering a true sense of discovery – you never know what relic you might find in there – today I happened to be on that street and stopped in.  Deep in the back of the store I found a vintage New Order poster (printed in 1987) hiding behind a reel-to-reel in need of repair.  I asked about the price and walked away a mere $10 lighter but with a pep in my step and poster to boot.

That biofeedback alone was worth ten bucks.
