Reopening Update

We're back in action!

Masks are required for all customers and employees – they're provided along with hand sanitizer and gloves.

We appreciate your cooperation as we limit TWO customers/family units inside the shop at a time.

In addition to in-store shopping, we are more than happy to accommodate curbside pickup and domestic shipping. Call or email to coordinate.

See you soon!


Records, Cassettes, Events

Fully reopened as of July 9th!

Uptown NYC's independent record shop with a carefully selected inventory of new & used jazz, soul, latin, world, hip hop, funk, rock, house, and techno. We have turntables and vinyl accessories for sale, too!

What began in 2011 as a rooftop film & live performance series, morphed into cassette releases as the Cinderblock People label, and now a brick & mortar record shop serving uptown Manhattan and the Bronx. After a successful Kickstarter campaign, we opened our doors in Harlem on August 19, 2017.

We have 3 listening stations (2 turntables and 1 tape deck). Very important!

Buy | Sell | Trade

If you'd like to sell records, tapes, or a turntable, please email / call us to schedule an appointment and ensure a buyer is at the store when you get there.

If you have a very large collection or need some help, we're happy to come to you!
If you're coming by to browse n shop, we're open to the public 5 days a week.
