Ghosts of Record Stores Past and Present

Much of my youth was spent hunting for and playing vinyl. I have created this site to remember many of the stores I've visited. Don't try and visit them without calling first, as many of them are no longer with us. If I've posted a picture of a store that you want me to delete please let me know and I'll take it down. To see a particular store just open the photo album with its name on it or click on the green (open) or red (closed) marker in the map below. Expanding the map will reveal more stores in the same city.

The site also contains links to interesting articles and information on record shops and record collecting and fine musical suggestions and playlists for your listening pleasure (with You Tube links so you can check them out for yourself). The Playlists can be found by scrolling to a separate section of the index under the heading musical resources. And our latest addition, Song of the Day, a glimpse at what's playing on my stereo today, appears there as well.

Help/Looking For

Calling all record collectors.  I'm still looking for pictures of a number of stores I've visited in my travels.  If you have any of them - or other pictures of the stores listed - and would like to share, please send them to my gmail account at

Here's a list:  Midnight (a great record store where I bought countless records), R&R Records in Port Washington NY, Stone Cellar in Roslyn NY (my first used record store), Music Arcade in Wantagh, Record Hunter, Record World, Memory Lane in Baldwin and Infinity at its old location in the strip mall on Sunrise.

I'll be updating this list from time to time so check back and thanks for the help.

Did I get anything wrong?  Wrong picture for a store?  Store still open? Let me know and I'll correct it.
