The Thing is a Greenpoint thrift shop (in)famous for having the Largest Used Record Selection in NYC.
"If you love crate digging, you MUST come here. This place is the epitome of it. There are hundreds of thousands of records in the basement and I often stay around 6 hours to leave with a sizable crate of records. You can find almost anything and everything here, so don't come expecting to see a certain record, but your efforts will undoubtedly be rewarded.
All records are $2, but the more you buy, the cheaper each record gets. They can get down to around $1.50 if you buy around 100!
THIS PLACE IS LEGENDARY AMONGST VINYL HEADS FOR A REASON!"
