Anybody Ever Been to This Place in New York

I've never been to New York myself, but just curious.
Was listening to a Fela record, and reading the back cover...GoogleMap the place and boom, still there to this day!
It's not too far from my work, I'll try and stop by there this week on my lunch break.
used to hit it up back in the late 90s. came up on a few nice records, but at that point it had already been well-plundered.
pretty sure they still press certain LPs (including Voodoonoun) so if you're hankering for a reissue that looks OG they can certainly sort you.
to the batmobile! let's go!

In the 80s they had a branch in DC I hit once.
In the early 90s I tried to order records from them. But all the titles I mentioned were out of print and they wouldn't tell me what was in print. They had no wholesale (or retail) catalog, even though they had a label or 'distribution' company.
