No big surprises here: the Williamsburg outpost of W. 18th Street institution Academy Records has the best used bins in Brooklyn. Overwhelmingly deep and yet still masterfully curated, the selection is predictably heavy on obscure punk, indie and classic rock but also notable for its breadth of focus, with impressive sections dedicated to hip-hop, classical, blues, soul, and disco, plus the most extensive international offerings you’ll find anywhere. And would it be lame if we mentioned that the store’s not all dusty and gross like other used record shops? We’re pretty into that.
96 N. 6th Street, Williamsburg.
