Best place for a record collector to have a nervous breakdown (2008)


Deep in Greenpoint lurks THE THING, a charming, messy secondhand shop hiding a dark secret: Its basement holds allegedly the largest accumulation of used vinyl records in the city. And it's all completely unsorted. Descend into the hot, cramped dungeon if you dare, and you'll find among the thousands of discs everything from rare Factory first pressings to Sisqó remix 12-inches barely worth the two-dollars-a-platter price. The scariest part? The owner keeps acquiring more to sell.
