4. Permanent Records, Brooklyn
Greenpoint seems to be the place to go if you are looking for the record; Permanent Records, Academy Records Annex, Record Grouch, Co-Op 87, and Captured Tracks are all in the neighborhood. Permanent Records, owned by Marjorie Eisenberg, has the welcoming atmosphere of Academy Records, but with enough space to occasionally act as a music venue. The roomier displays, however, still allow customers to enjoy the process of digging for just the right record.
