New record shop called 2 Bridges opens in NYC – News
2 Bridges Record Shop has just opened in NYC, offering a new outlet to showcase a wide variety of music, art and literature.
The 2 Bridges Record Shop hopes to fill the void in Downtown New York
The arrival of the 2 Bridges Record Shop comes at an interesting time for the music scene in NYC. As a number of shops have had to permanently close in 2016, notably the popular shops of Other Music, Rebel Rebel and Israel’s Record Shop.
2 Bridges now could help fill a void in the community and the shop’s owner is very much aware of this.
Simon Gabriel Greenberg, founder of 2 Bridges, told RA about his vision for the shop: “I’ve had the idea to do a shop with new leftfield and electronic music for a while now.
Especially after Other Music closed, I felt like there was a huge hole in Downtown New York for a place to discover and interact with forward-thinking new music…
So therefore I decided to do this shop as a way of providing that. While also contextualizing it a bit in terms of other creative things that are happening in art, theory or science.”
Not just a home for forward thinking music, 2 Bridges also offers an exhibition space for select performance and art shows.
