Ugh, yeah I haven't been there in some time. I also realized Good Records is now Stranded Records.In Living Stereo is only a hifi store now...it was one of my favorites but they got rid of the record store portion a few years ago unless they brought the records back.
It's also just a 10 minute train ride to Human Head (from Union Square to Montrose Ave on the L train) Comparable to walking over to the East Village. I also forgot Limited to One. I haven't been to the brick and mortar in person but they always have a top notch selection at Record Fairs and on Instagram.
Ah I've only been record shopping here since 2003, and just only moved here in 2013 and even in that short time it's gotten more sparse. I definitely missed the heydays, but was happy I still got to experience some classics to measure other stores against. It seems like a few new things are popping up in Bushwick/Willamsburg etc, but they've all been adjusted to reflect the trendiness of vinyl out there. Dollar bins are now like $8+ bins...Thanks, I come from the days of Sounds, Second Coming, etc.
