"South Street Seaport / City Hall"
J&R Music World has been the mega-source for cutting-edge consumer electronics since the age of 8-track tapes and disco skating. What began in 1971 as a small storefront across from City Hall has morphed into a six-story Manhattan institution that stretches the entire city block. Yet despite its size, this family-owned business prides itself on personal service. Customers get expert assistance from the knowledgeable sales staff on everything from DVDs to MP3s, plus tens of thousands of electronics devices in every imaginable category. And because this downtown retail mecca deals in such enormous volumes, it's able to pass on great deals on the latest products, sometimes weeks before other stores even have them in stock.
