6. Record Shop | Coffee Shop: Black Gold

Black Gold was previously featured in our list of 5 Record Stores in NYC Where You Can Still Get Vinyl. Originally, Sommer Foster-Santoro wanted to open a coffee shop, while her co-owner Jeff Ogiba wanted to open a record shop. Luckily for us, they decided to combine both ideas.
In addition to coffee, they also sell taxidermy and a variety of antiques, from Victorian-era pieces to mid-century modern. You can grab a drink by the counter and sit in the front window. Address: 461 Court St.
