Default Good places in NYC to buy Blu-Rays?

Just curious, for all your New Yorkers out there. Any good places to score blu-rays in the city that isn't Barnes and Noble or Best Buy?

There's a record store on 18th Street, just after it becomes West 18th Street, I think it's Academy Records, they have a pretty good used selection, not huge but they tend to have a lot of "high end" labels like Criterion, Twilight Time, and Shout, sometimes at not-bad prices.

Book Off on 45th is decent, but they tend to have a lot more DVDs than Blus. I have often seen them misfile Blus as DVDs -- a week after I bought the Tarantino XX box for myself, I saw it there for something like $20, because they thought it was a DVD set. When I upgrade a DVD to Blu, I put it in a pile, and I usually dump a bunch on them, get a coupon and a few bucks cash, and then buy a few things while I'm there.

There aren't too many left, back in the glory days of DVD you couldn't go a block in any direction from Union Square without finding a store that sold DVDs.

The Strand on 12th and Broadway in the basement. Some $5 titles (I got A walk in the Woods) and usually $10 Kino Lorbers (got Back Roads for 10, Hickey and Boggs for $12). There's also Jack's World on 32nd street between 6th and 7th second floor and a store on 8th street between 6th ave and broadway Disc-o-Rama which is closed Sundays but advertises new releases for 18.99. Fordidden Planet on Broadway between 12th and 13th has a good selection of Synapse and Vinegar Syndrome as well as other labels..

What did they do? Did they dump the whole section? (I haven't been in Union Square lately, so it's probably been a few months since I hit up The Strand.) It seemed like they weren't acquiring new stock at all this year, but they also seemed to rarely sell any off either.

Look for a guy on the streets during the week named Willie. Usually around 28th street.

I'm considering bringing a bunch of DVDs i want to get rid of to Academy Records. Mostly classic Hollywood from the 40s to 60s. Could you tell me the approximate sum you got per disc? A dollar? Less?

Thanks for any info on this
