6. Human Head Records: Quirky, oldies
Even before entering Human Head Records you’ll probably notice the two mannequin heads rotating on turn tables in the window and you will already have a pretty good idea about the place. The owner, originally from Wisconsin, brought a trailer full of 3,000 records to Bushwick when the shop opened, setting himself a standard of carrying records (mostly classic rock/oldies) that are typically hard to come by in NYC. The vinyls are separated by genre and price, boasting lots of classic, indie, and alternative rock, some jazz, soul, and others. Collectibles and low-budget gems alike, vinyl enthusiasts are bound to find something valuable at one of the quirkiest record shops in NYC.
